On April of 2016, Dr. Kassube spoke on "The Relationship Between Periodontal Disease and Cardiovascular Disease". He presented up-to-date studies and information in Charlotte, NC to the North Carolina Association of Vascular Technology.
Several studies have shown that periodontal disease is associated with heart disease. While a cause-and-effect relationship has not yet been proven, research has indicated that periodontal disease increases the risk of heart disease. Scientists believe that inflammation caused by periodontal disease may be responsible for the association. Periodontal disease can also exacerbate existing heart conditions.
We're committed to getting solid information out to health professionals on the importance of good periodontal and dental health!
