Seminar: Periodontal disease and atherothrombotic diseases: Lessons from clinical and basic studies – January 16, 2013

The relationship between poor oral health and systemic diseases has been increasingly recognized over the past two decades. There is considerable epidemiological evidence to support the concept that poor oral health, especially the extent and severity of periodontal disease, may put patients at a significant risk for a variety of systemic conditions such as coronary heart disease (CHD).
