University of Louisville professor helps change thinking about origin of gum disease

from University of Louisville

Inflammation of gum tissues — periodontitis — is one of the most common infectious diseases. Those affected are more susceptible to diseases of the circulatory system, rheumatoid arthritis, aspiration pneumonia or premature birth. The findings of Jan Potempa, Ph.D., DSc, professor and academic scholar, Oral Health and Systemic Disease group, University of Louisville School of Dentistry, have helped change scientific thinking about the origin of periodontal tissue inflammation. The results of his research may lead to the development of more effective medication to combat periodontal disease, and therefore reduce the risk of heart disease and arthritis. more
