ABSTRACT
The article reports on a study on the potential of an intensive treatment for periodontitis by scientists at the University College London (UCL) in England. Such treatment is found to improve blood vessel health in a randomized middle-aged periodontitis patients who have no evidence of cardiovascular disease. After six months of intensive treatment involving plaque and tooth removal, an improvement in such disease and a significant restoration of blood vessel function have been noted.
