A new study suggests that periodontal disease may increase the risk for respiratory infections, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and pneumonia. These infections, which are caused when bacteria from the upper throat are inhaled into the lower respiratory tract, can be severely debilitating and are one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. The study included 200 participants between the ages of 20 and 60 with at least 20 natural teeth.

Researchers suspect that the presence of oral pathogens associated with periodontal disease may increase a
