Periodontal infections cause changes in traditional and novel cardiovascular risk factors: Results from a randomized controlled clinical trial

Periodontal infections cause changes in traditional and novel cardiovascular risk factors:... Background Chronic infections, such as periodontitis, are associated with increased risk of systemic diseases driven by a persistent low-grade systemic inflammation and metabolic changes.

Abstract

Background Chronic infections, such as periodontitis, are associated with increased risk of systemic diseases driven by a persistent low-grade systemic inflammation and metabolic changes. Severity of periodontitis has also been associated with increased systolic blood pressure (BP). However, the issue remains poorly investigated. We aimed to estimate the effect of periodontal therapy on traditional and novel cardiovascular risk factors in systemically healthy individuals who have periodontitis.
