Here is an important message from Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati. The link between your dental health and your overall health is well-established, but new research is making the case even stronger. Brushing your teeth twice a day may help decrease your risk of heart disease.
Dentists and doctors have known for years about the connection between gum disease and heart problems, But a recent study analyzed oral health habits and heart disease risk. Science Daily reported on the study which was published in the British Medical Journal:
Researchers found that [study subjects] who reported less frequent toothbrushing had a 70 percent extra risk of heart disease compared to individuals who brushed their teeth twice a day.
In other words, you aren’t healthy unless your gums and teeth are healthy.
