An introduction by Prof.F. D’Aiuto will give an overview of the relationship between oral diseases and vascular health.

Then, Dr. Christelle Darnaud will present the results based on her epidemiological research on oral status and vascular parameters.
The third speaker Dr. Orlandi will present his work on flow-mediated dilation and carotid intima media thickness in patients with periodontitis.

The last speaker, Dr Yvonne Jockel-Schneider will present the effect of periodontal therapy on vascular parameters.

To sum up the session, the chairmen will open the questions & answers period with the audience.

Learning Objectives
  • Promote an interdisciplinary approach to improve prevention of cardiovascular diseases in patients with poor oral health.
  • Invite researchers in the dental field to collaborate with specialists in other scientific and medical fields to investigate the pathophysiological mechanisms involved.
