Scientists have found a significant association between periodontitis and fibrosis, which can lead to irregular heart rhythms.

“Periodontitis is associated with long-term inflammation, and inflammation plays an important role in the progression of atrial fibrosis and the pathogenesis of atrial fibrillation,” said one of the study’s authors.

The researchers suggest that periodontal care should be added to prevent atrial fibrillation, in addition to reducing other risk factors such as high weight, low activity levels, tobacco and alcohol use.
