Healthy Teeth, Healthy Heart

More and more research shows that oral health is linked to heart health.
Around 700 different types of bacteria can be found in the mouth.  If you fail to use your toothbrush and floss enough you may suffer from poor dental hygiene.  If you have bad dental hygiene, you could end up with bleeding gums, gingivitis and other oral diseases which are caused by the bacteria in your mouth. 

Plaque that is not removed causes an increase in bacterial count in your mouth.  That bacteria then goes into the blood stream and contributes to heart disease.

People that regularly visit their dentist and take good care of their teeth are less likely to have heart problems like cardiovascular disease.

Until a cure is found, it is recommended you take care of your teeth by brushing and flossing them regularly.
