Live Longer By Having Healthy Teeth ???
Most everyone is concerned about having a healthy heart and preventing heart disease. Well, some interesting facts have surfaced over the last 10 years. Research beginning in the 2000s suggests that your dental health may have a very direct relationship with your heart health. Several different studies conducted by cardiologists, and by periodontists (specialists in gum disease) now suggest that there are several connections between dental health and heart disease. People with gum disease or with deteriorating teeth are much more likely to have heart disease. These are correlative studies, not cause and effect studies, but further research in this area may in fact suggest that keeping your teeth, gums and mouth healthy is a key factor to keeping a healthy heart.
