Periodontal and Cardiovascular Disease

Did you know that the American Heart Association has estimated that over eighty million Americans suffer from one or more forms of cardiovascular disease?

The Denver dentists of Cody Dental Group can help…

In recent years the association between cardiovascular and periodontal disease has been the subject of intense medical research.  Associations between the two diseases include common bacterial infections and chronic systemic inflammatory mechanisms.

Between the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and a study published in both The American Journal of Cardiology and the Journal of Periodontology, it has been confirmed that periodontal disease is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.

In addition, those diagnosed with either disease should be checked for the other.  Our Denver Periodontist, as well as all of our General Dentists, are trained to diagnose early periodontal disease and help prevent complications.

At Cody, our focus has always been the preservation of health and the prevention of disease though quality dental care and an integrated relationship with our patients’ physicians.
