AADR comments on review that validates association between oral health and heart health
Date:4/20/2012

The extensive review of current literatureincluding more than 40 epidemiologic observational studiesdid indeed support an association between periodontal disease and ASVD independent of known cofounders. "The validation of an association between periodontal disease and heart disease from the American Heart Association is an important statement from a public policy perspective," said AADR President Rena D'Souza. While the association has been demonstrated, the literature review failed to support either a cause-effect relationship, or that periodontal treatment might prevent ASVD or modify its outcome.

AADR has many members who are researching the association between oral health and cardiovascular health, but long-term studies on the association between periodontal infection and cardiovascular disease or long-term periodontal treatment intervention studies on cardiovascular health are certainly understudied. Hence, it was not surprising that the authors failed to find evidence in the literature demonstrating either causality or a treatment effect.

Importantly, the AHA review highlighted significant gaps in our scientific understanding of the interaction of oral
