The American Academy of Periodontology recognizes a variety of research showing a link between heart disease and periodontal (aka gum) disease, which occurs when excess plaque (a type of bacteria) buildup leads to inflammation and infection. In fact, some studies have found that people with periodontal disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from heart disease as those without it. According to Nancy Rosen, DMD, a dentist in Manhattan and a former clinical instructor at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, the excess bacteria can attach to artery walls and contribute to obstruction-causing clots.
