Can heart problems (high blood pressure) cause dental problems?

Not likely.: Not likely that high blood pressure can cause dental problems. Diabetes can be a contributing factor in the development of periodontal (gum & bone) disease. Periodontal disease can be a contributing factor to heart disease. The inflammatory process can raise your c-reactive protein level contributing to heart disease.
