There are several theories among research concerning a solid link between infectious mouth bacteria and heart disease. One theory is that oral bacteria can affect the heart when they enter the blood stream, attaching to fatty plaques in the coronary arteries (heart blood vessels) and contributing to clot formation.
The immune system’s response to these toxins could harm vessel walls or make blood clot more easily. It is also possible that inflammation in the mouth increases inflammation throughout the body, including in the arteries, where it can lead to heart attack and stroke.
Researchers have found that people with periodontal disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease as those without periodontal disease. Other studies have pointed to a relationship between periodontal disease and stroke.
