Periodontal disease and rheumatoid arthritis
from Dental Economics
Recent research has indicated an association between two chronic, noncurable diseases — periodontal disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a debilitating, autoimmune, joint destroying, chronic inflammatory condition of unknown etiology. It affects about 1 percent of the adult population. Anyone who has experienced rheumatoid arthritis firsthand, or in a family member or friend, understands how life-changing it can be.
