Association between periodontitis and severity of COVID-19 infection
Conclusion: Periodontitis was associated with 9x higher risk of ICU admission, need for assisted ventilation and death of COVID-19 patients.
Clinical Relevance: This study helps understand better the risk factors influencing the outcome of COVID-19 infections and by revealing that periodontitis could be a risk factor, this study highlights the importance of periodontal health in the prevention and perhaps even management of COVID-19 complications.
Creating A Sanitary Environment
Our goal is to offer our patients therapies that we would want for ourselves. We have literally searched the world for the most gentle and effective treatments. This has led us to minimally-invasive treatments that combine accurate diagnosis of the causes of periodontal and implant infections with proven laser, antibiotic, antiseptic and implant therapies to provide predictable, long-lasting treatment to save lives…and smiles.
