Title: Table #25: Periodontitis and Cardiovascular Diseases: Evidence From National Surveys

This session will review evidence from large epidemiological studies on the association between periodontal conditions and cardiovascular diseases (CVD), including CVD outcomes but also markers such as high blood pressure. The strength of the evidence and the nature of the associations will facilitate interpretation and policy implications will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • The session aims to help participants: 1. gain knowledge of the epidemiological evidence on the association between periodontal conditions and cardiovascular disease using large population studies in different settings
  • 2. understand and interpret the relevant evidence and be able to distance epidemiological associations from causal inferences.
  • 3. discuss potential implications from the aforementioned epidemiological evidence for public health and clinical practice
