Dental Health Affects Heart Health

Brush Up to a Healthier You!

Dental hygiene seems simple, but research shows that brushing and flossing goes well beyond your pearly whites. When you're brushing your teeth, you're not only freshening your breath and promoting gum health, but also taking steps to prevent having a heart attack.

Studies show that poor oral health can increase your risk of a heart attack or stroke because it releases plaque-causing bacteria into your bloodstream. Building upon previous findings that dental health affects overall health, this research goes to show that it really only takes two minutes to reach a healthier you. All you need are your handy toothbrush, minty paste, and a wheel of floss!
