Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is responsible for much mortality across the w orld, especially in our country .The conventional risk factors for atherosclerosis are well understood, but they can account for only about 50 to 70% of atherosclerotic events in the general population. The aim of this study was to investigate relationships between prevalent Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and clinical periodontal disease in patients with angiographic ally proven coronary artery disease. 152 consecutive patients w ith angiographically proven coronary artery disease will be included in this study, who received a complete periodontal examination during visit. Patients with normal coronary, average plaque index (1.61.02) Index of bleeding (1.510.92), mean adhesion level (3.571.18). But patients with coronary artery disease, the mean plaque index (2.460.62) Index of bleeding (1.860.92), mean adhesion level (4.131.45). These differences are statistically significant. (p<0.05) In this study, average depth of probe entrance on the surface of teeth has had little relation w ith cardiovascular disease (p = 0.051). According to the results of this study, in peoples over 40 years, who had coronary artery disease proved by coronary angiography, gingival inflammation (periodentitis) has a significant relation as a risk factor.
