Patients with periodontal disease frequently have significant deficiencies of an enzyme called CoQ10. One reason for the deficiency is due to an imblance in nutrition not likely caused by neglected oral hygiene. This deficiency could predispose tissue within the mouth for periodontal disease, or the disease could even cause the deficiency. The results of this study support previously suggested additional use of CoQ10 with oral hygiene for improved means of treatment.
