Chronic periodontitis can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and cannot be treated. But does this still apply to professional-treated or “inactive” periodontitis?
If you have mild or moderate periodontitis, but it was caught early and you maintain good oral hygiene and visit the dentist regularly to prevent it from getting worse, does that still increase your chance of developing cardiovascular disease?
Did the study that said periodontitis was correlated with CVD only apply to people with severe, untreated cases of periodontitis. Is it even specified/differentiated/mentioned?
