Abstract

Recent epidemiological studies have found an association between general health status such as CHD and oral health condition, particularly in people with evidence of <I>Chlamydia pneumoniae</I> infection. However, there is conflicting data for the relationship between CHD and the oral condition.<BR>The purpose of this study was to understand the relationship between oral health such as caries, periodontal disease and cardiovascular disease in relation to sex differences.<BR>Oral and microbiological examinations were conducted on 106 patients aged 50 years and over (68 males, 38 females) with cardiovascular disease, admitted to Iwate Medical University Hospital. In this study, the subjects were divided into two groups, male and female.<BR>The conclusions were as follows:<BR>1. Characteristic results of microbiological examination showed no significant relationship between people with cardiovascural disease.<BR>2. As for hard tissue, previous treatment of coronal caries was higher in females than males, and morbidity of root caries was higher in males than in females.<BR>3. Morbidity of periodontal disease was higher in people with cardiovascural disease than in normal people, and in sex differences, oral health of males was worse than females.
