Description:

Over the past ten years, there have been many studies linking gum disease and hardening of the arteries. At first, there were observations that people with poor oral health were more prone to heart disease. More recently, scientists have found clear links between the total amount of periodontal bacteria in the mouth and blockages in the carotid artery. This study proves that at least some of the bacteria manage to escape that fate. This Science Update looks at the research, which leads to the findings presented and offers links to other sources for further inquiry.
