Introduction: Human studies have shown that patients with cardiovascular diseases have worse periodontal status. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the periodontal health in patients with coronary heart diseases who underwent angiography. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 135 patients with coronary artery disease participated who underwent angiography. Periodontal indices were assessed including bleeding on probing, plaque index, probing depth, furcation involvement, number of missing teeth and number of tooth with pathologic mobility. According to angiography results, the presence of coronary artery stenosis and its severity were recorded based on the number of involvement arteries. Data was analyzed by Mann-whitney test and N par test using spss software (version 16). Results: According to results of angiography, there were 106 patients with CHD that among them, 65% were with periodontitis, 6.6% with health periodontium. Out of the remaining 29 patients (with normal result of angiography) 44.8% had gingivitis and 44.8% had periodontitis. Probing depth index was significantly different in patients with and without coronary artery stenosis (p<0.05) whereas there was no significant difference between patients with other periodontal indices (p>0.05). Conclusion: Patients with coronary artery disease have worse periodontal status compared to individual with normal angiography.
