FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Miami, Oct 13, 2012 – Periodontal disease is the leading cause of cardiovascular disease in people of USA, according to the recent research of AAP (American Academy or Periodontology) and AJC (American Journal of Cardiology). The research shows that per day about 3,000 people died. Periodontal disease destroys gums of the teeth and bones. It affects nearly 80 % people in USA and this is also the main cause of tooth loss in adults. Research shows that the epidemic rates of this disease seem severe and controlling one disease can help to eliminate the chance for all the other.
Dr. Anthony Garland, DDS, PhD, senior executive member of the AAP says “Inflammation is the common thing that connects both cardiovascular and periodontal disease and inflammation level can increase due to the Gum disease all over the body. So it is very important to build up health-related suggestions and tips in our patients. Therefore the joining forces of our periodontists and cardiologists are now there to help such patients.” He further said that “The health-related suggestions will help cardiologists and periodontists to stop the inflammatory problem caused by heart related disease or gum disease and helping to decrease the possible risk of further disease growth. Our common goal is to improve the overall health of our patients.”
According to the study, it is recommended that physicians dealing with the patients of cardiovascular disease should check the teeth for the primary symptoms of periodontal disease such as receding gums, significant tooth loss and visual signs of oral inflammation. The periodontists will educate their patients about the increased chances of cardiovascular disease related to gum disease. They will also check the possibility of cardiovascular disease in future and assist them for the natural treatments for gum disease.
