Periodontal Disease and Its Association With Other Disease

Research has shown that periodontal disease is associated with several other diseases. For a long time it was thought that bacteria was the factor that linked periodontal disease to other disease in the body; however, more recent research demonstrates that inflammation may be responsible for the association. Therefore, treating inflammation may not only help manage periodontal diseases but may also help with the management of other chronic inflammatory conditions. Be sure to visit your dentist/periodontist regularly for your cleaning and check up for early detection (AAP)
