Daily Oral Hygiene: Put Your Heart Into It

Top Epping Family Dentists

In this message from Brentwood Dental Designs in Epping, we remind you of the link between your dental health and your overall health.

Scientists, dentists, and cardiologists have known for years that there is a connection between gum disease and heart problems. However, a recent study analyzed oral health habits and heart disease risk.

Science Daily reported on the study, which analyzed the data from more than 11,000 adult subjects.

Once the data was adjusted for established cardio risk factors, the researchers found that participants who reported less frequent toothbrushing had a 70 percent extra risk of heart disease compared to those who brushed their teeth twice a day.

The survey is one of many that validates the link between oral health and overall vitality. Simply put: you aren’t healthy unless your gums and teeth are healthy.

At Brentwood Dental Designs in Epping we want all our patients to have long, healthy lives. Patients from Brentwood, Exeter, and Rye come to us for our biological and integrative dentistry and wellness focus, and complete general dentistry. Call our office to schedule your next appointment today!
