It is increasingly common to hear that oral health is vital for overall health. Oral diseases may be the risk factor for many of the systemic diseases. Some of the common oral conditions include dental caries, periodontitis, and tooth loss. These conditions may have a negative effect on health. Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are one of the common systemic diseases. Some of the common risk factors are shared by CVDs, periodontitis, and tooth loss. Hence, the review was based on the purpose to study the link between tooth loss, periodontitis, and CVDs. The search was based on population, intervention, comparison, and outcome to decide the parameters to study the link between CVDs, periodontitis, and tooth loss for the search methodology, and relevant articles were searched from various databases such as PubMed and Google Scholar. These articles were assessed by investigators. By assessing the articles, we found that tooth loss, periodontitis, and CVDs share some risk factors and may be linked with each other. Further studies should be carried to prove this association.
