The relationship between tooth loss, diet and cardiovascular disease amongst Australian women
suggests that tooth loss is associated with an increased risk for heart disease.
Tooth loss is also associated with an increased risk for poor diet. In this
study we aim to further investigate
whether tooth loss increases the risk for heart disease and whether diet
quality relates to this association. This analysis will use data from the 1946-1951 cohort of Australian women where tooth loss, diet and
heart disease outcomes are collected across time.
