Periodontal disease is the neglected syndrome that leads to tooth loss and systemic diseases in older men. Dizziness is a condition with high reported incidences; they worsen with age and can burden the health systems. The present study investigated whether periodontal disease causes dizziness in older patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Research data was retrieved from the National Health Insurance Research Database. Older patients with COPD were diagnosed with periodontal disease, dizziness. In the control group, we randomly selected individuals without periodontal disease who were sex and age-matched with the investigated participants. The Kaplan–Meier curve indicated that the cumulative incidence of dizziness was significantly higher among older patients with COPD and periodontal disease compared to the controls. After adjustment, Cox proportional hazards analysis revealed that older patients with COPD with periodontal disease had an increased risk of dizziness. Compared to controls, the risk of dizziness among periodontal disease was higher in women and male patients. Therefore, periodontal disease is not only a risk factor for dizziness, but also an independent risk factor for dizziness in older patients with COPD.
