New studies link perio health to kidney health
Periodontal health has again been linked to kidney health in two new studies presented at the recent 2018 International Association of Dental Research meeting in London. The studies found a significant association between chronic kidney disease and signs of poor periodontal health. In one study, periodontal inflammation was associated with a decrease in kidney function, and in the other, patients with worse clinical attachment levels were significantly more likely to have worse kidney function in the future.
