ABSTRACT:
Aim: To review about the cardiac disease related with oral hygiene. Objective: The purpose of this review is to analyse published studies in order to provide a summary of risk factor for cardiovascular disease related with oral hygiene and to explore the possible causes for conflicting results in the literature. Background: Bacteria on your teeth and gums could travel through your bloodstream and attach to fatty plaques in your arteries leading to atherosclerosis, making the plaques become more swollen. These bacteria entering the bloodstream causes an elevation in C-reactive protein, a marker for inflammation in the blood vessels. If one of the plaques bursts and forms a blood clot and causes heart attack or stroke. Its possible that swelling in gums leads to swelling in other parts of your body, including your arteries. This swelling can also contribute to heart disease. Reason: To create awareness and the importance of oral hygiene in order to take adequate steps to prevent cardiac disorders.
