Study Establishes Link Between Heart Disease And Periodontal Bacteria

A study carried out by a group of researchers, at the Department of Health Sciences, Kristianstad University, found a link between periodontal bacteria and acute// coronary syndrome (ACS).

The study also revealed that the degree of alveolar bone loss was significantly greater among those with ACS than in the non-ACS group. Seventy-seven percent of the study participants in the ACS group showed signs of periodontitis while only 42 percent in the control group demonstrated evidence of the disease.

The results have been published in the latest issue of Journal of Periodontology.

A researcher who belonged to the study group said: "This might be one of several explanations as to why elevated bacteria and the combination of specific pathogens in periodontal pockets can be linked to a history of ACS."

"Although this study supports past findings, further research is needed to evaluate the effects of specific bacteria such as T. forsythia and T. denticola on reducing the risk for ACS," the researcher said.
