November 2017

Research

Country of origin: USA

A prospective cohort study set out to determine whether cannabis smoking was a risk factor for periodontal disease among young adults. The researchers found that, after controlling for tobacco smoking (the most important behavioral predictor) and other important confounders, regular exposure to cannabis smoke was strongly associated with the prevalence and incidence of periodontal attachment loss by age 32 years. The research was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
