Professional Dental Cleanings Help Decrease Heart Attack

According to a recent study, there is enough evidence to prove that having healthy teeth and gums increases the chances of avoiding heart disease complications.

A new study run on 100,000 participants shows that those ones who had their teeth cleaned professionally, actually lowered by 24% their risk of developing heart attack, and by 13% their risk for stroke.

The human mouth is basically a gateway for all kinds of bacteria which enter the bloodstream. These bacteria can cause inflammation, which in turn can spread from the mouth to all the other major organs in the body.

The entire cardiovascular system is extremely vulnerable when it comes to these kinds of infectors, so this is why proper oral heath care is extremely important.

The study has also revealed that the higher the inflammation/decay degree in the teeth, the higher the risk of developing a cardiovascular disease.
