Consensus report

There is strong epidemiological evidence that periodontitis increases the risk of future atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, according to the consensus report of the Perio-Cardio Workshop, an expert meeting held in February 2019 and organised jointly by the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) and the World Heart Federation (WHF). This consensus report – originally published in the EFP’s Journal of Clinical Periodontology and the WHF’s Global Heart in February 2020 – forms the basis of the recommendations of the Perio & Cardio campaign.
