Recent research presented at the American College of Cardiology Middle East Conference 2019, together with the 10th Emirates Cardiac Society Congress, has also uncovered a lesser-known risk factor associated with poor dental health.

Oral disease is an inflammatory disease that frequently causes tooth loss due to the breakdown of periodontal tissue.

Periodontal tissue both surrounds and supports the teeth, providing the components necessary for your teeth to function.

The link between oral disease and cardiovascular disease is not well known, so researchers conducted a secondary analysis of the 2014 Behaviour Risk Factor Surveillance System that looked at tooth loss not caused by trauma, as well as cardiovascular disease, including heart attack, angina and/or stroke.
