Daily Oral Hygiene: Put Your Heart Into It

Top Yuma Family DentistsIn this post from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, we remind your to brush and floss your teeth twice every day. It’s best for your dental health, but this reminder is more so you reduce your risk of heart disease.

The link between dental health and overall health has never been stronger. Scientists, dentists, and cardiologists have known for years of the link between gum disease and heart problems. But a recent study evaluated oral health habits and heart disease risk.

To quote from the Science Daily:

“The authors [of the study], led by Professor Richard Watt from University College London, analyzed data from over 11,000 adults who took part in a Scottish Health Survey. The research team analyzed data about lifestyle behaviors such as smoking, physical activity, and oral health routines…

“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 individuals who brushed their teeth twice a day.”

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