There may be: It depends on the cause of heart failure. In general bad dental hygiene is associated with infections of the heart and inflammation in the arteries of the heart (coronary arteries) both of which can lead to heart failure long term.
Dr. Marc Benhuri
Prosthodontics 45 years experience
Yes : This can be related to periodontal disease.
