Periodontal Disease And Kidney Disease

Written by Jeffery Platt on . Posted in Latest Posts

A recent study showed that periodontal disease will make someone more prone to kidney disease.

Among different races, the study showed that African Americans with normal kidney function were four times as likely to develop chronic kidney disease when compared to those without severe periodontal disease.

Periodontal disease is a chronic bacterial infection of the oral cavity and disproportionately impacts people considered African American. It also has been pinpointed as a risk factor for CKD.
