Lower The Risk Of A Heart Attack By Brushing Your Teeth The Right Way
Brushing your teeth correctly may thwart the occurrence of a heart attack when the plaques are periodically removed and the set of teeth is kept clean and healthy.
Dental problems may increase the risk of having a heart attack or stroke. Data shows that people with periodontal disease have a higher risk of having a cardiovascular problem compared to persons with healthy mouths. An explanation for this is that the bacteria that causes tooth decay emits toxins into the bloodstreams thereby forming arterial plaques that trigger a heart attack. These deposits also cause blood clots and arterial blockages.
The other reason for this is that the bacteria causes the liver to produce high levels of specific proteins causing inflammation. Inflammation leads to heart attack.
When a person brushes his teeth thoroughly, the risk of inflammation is lowered to the levels close to that of statins, a type of drug taken to lower cholesterol levels in the blood, thereby decreasing the chances of stroke or a heart attack.
A study was done when recipients of the study were given a special toothpaste that focused on the removal of dental flakes. The special toothpaste removed twice as much as the ordinary one. It also helped lower inflammation levels to 29 percent closer to what statins does which is 37 percent, according to Professor Charles Hennekens of Florida Atlantic University.
Scientists are convinced that the levels of cholesterol lowered from the study that was conducted with better dental hygiene will help lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Persons with gingivitis is at a high risk of stroke when bacteria from the swollen gums emit toxins to the bloodstream and circulates it to the body. The bacteria will hold on to the aortal wall, which may cause inflammation causing a heart attack.
Brushing teeth well will decrease the volume of bacteria from the mouth; fewer bacteria means less risk of a heart attack.
