Is there a connection between gum disease and heart disease?
Several studies have shown an association between gum disease and heart disease. However, a cause and effect relationship has not been established. Both gum disease and heart disease are inflammatory conditions. Untreated gum disease can cause inflammation throughout the body. This systemic inflammation may increase the risk for development of heart disease. More research is needed to confirm this and is currently ongoing.
