Effect of periodontitis on the lungs

Q: What is the effect of periodontitis on the lungs?

A: Recent studies have indicated that there might be some connection between lung disease and periodontitis, because both involve some of the same bacteria. Laser treatment can eliminate these potential bacteria from the oral cavity, which have the potential to spread to the lungs and other sites in the body.
