ABSTRACT

Oral health condition may be a good predictor of cardiovascular health. The mouth is full of bacteria, both good and evil, and the “bad” can enter the bloodstream and cause inflammation of the blood vessels, leading to cardiovascular diseases. Studies have shown that tooth loss and inflamed gums (periodontitis) are markers of heart disease. Another indicator is the color of the lips. Lips are usually red, but may be bluish (cyanosis) in people with heart problems due to system failure and cardiovascular to supply oxygenated blood to tissues; blue lips are probably only caused by a temporary lack of oxygen and pass quite quickly. Heart disease is complex and difficult when it affects adults, but in children the impact is much greater. There are many types of heart disease that can affect children. These include congenital heart defects, viral infections and even heart disease acquired due to other genetic conditions. In some cases the symptoms are not obvious and its delays in diagnosis. At other times, the symptoms are very clear and require medical consultation. COVID-19 virus
