Chronic liver disease is a major health concern worldwide and the identification of novel modifiable risk factors may benefit subjects at risk. Few studies have analyzed periodontitis as a risk factor for liver complications. We studied whether periodontitis is associated with incident severe liver disease.

Periodontitis is a chronic inflammatory disease that influences the protective tissues of teeth. IL-8, a member of the chemokine super-family, plays vital roles in the pathogenesis of periodontitis wi...
Periodontitis not only causes injury to the periodontium, but also damages other tissues such as: articulate, renal, cardiac and hepatic. The objective of this study was to investigate periodontitis i...
To determine the association between chronic periodontitis and erectile dysfunction adjusting for biochemical markers and other co-morbidities.
As an infection-driven inflammatory disease, periodontitis could lead to a reactive increase in platelet count. This mechanism could partially mediate the well documented association between periodont...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between periodontitis, dental scaling (DS) and pyogenic liver abscesses (PLAs).
Periodontal disease is a multifactorial disease caused by mainly bacterial, genetic, immunologically, and environmental factors. Chronic periodontitis, one of the widely prevalent forms of...
Periodontitis is an inflammatory/infectious disease of high prevalence in the population and which has been linked to several chronic inflammatory systemic diseases. However, few studies h...
Reviewed literature suggests that sclerostin will inhibit the bone formation and ultimately leads to chronic periodontitis. Estimation of Sclerostin levels in the serum of periodontitis pa...
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is the most common cause of chronic liver disease in the western world, affecting one in every three subjects. The investigators hypothesize that a patie...
Periodontitis is a highly prevalent chronic inflammatory disease that is characterized by loss of the periodontal ligament and alveolar bone, and is a major cause of tooth loss. Results fr...
Chronic inflammation and loss of PERIODONTIUM that is associated with the amount of DENTAL PLAQUE or DENTAL CALCULUS present. Chronic periodontitis occurs mostly in adults and was called adult periodontitis, but this disease can appear in young people.
Inflammation and loss of connective tissues supporting or surrounding the teeth. This may involve any part of the PERIODONTIUM. Periodontitis is currently classified by disease progression (CHRONIC PERIODONTITIS; AGGRESSIVE PERIODONTITIS) instead of age of onset. (From 1999 International Workshop for a Classification of Periodontal Diseases and Conditions, American Academy of Periodontology)
Sudden liver failure in the presence of underlying compensated chronic LIVER DISEASE (e.g., LIVER CIRRHOSIS; HEPATITIS; and liver injury and failure) due to a precipitating acute hepatic insult.
Inflammation and loss of PERIODONTIUM that is characterized by rapid attachment loss and bone destruction in the presence of little local factors such as DENTAL PLAQUE and DENTAL CALCULUS. This highly destructive form of periodontitis often occurs in young people and was called early-onset periodontitis, but this disease also appears in old people.
A syndrome characterized by the clinical triad of advanced chronic liver disease, pulmonary vascular dilatations, and reduced arterial oxygenation (HYPOXEMIA) in the absence of intrinsic cardiopulmonary disease. This syndrome is common in the patients with LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL).
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
