Could obesity raise the risk for perio disease?

I was on my favorite dental website today and I came across this article pertaining to obesity and perio disease. Basically, a study was done over the course of 16 years to determine if your body mass index has anything to do with perio disease. They found that it does, or at least they think so at this point. More studies will have to be done to be completely sure, but check out the details anyway. Very interesting article.
