Macular Degeneration Linked to Periodontitis

Many clinical studies link chronic periodontitis to various systemic disorders. A study conducted by the Dental College of Georgia that was presented at the 2018 American Association for Dental Research meeting demonstrated the link between the causative organisms for periodontitis and macular degeneration. The organisms can invade the human retinal-pigment cells and elevate macular degeneration genes. This is just another reason to make sure you are keeping your mouth disease free.
