Can clean teeth help keep a heart healthy ?

“Brushing your teeth twice a day could save you from a heart attack”, the Daily Mail reported.

This news story is based on a study of how often people brushed their teeth and their risk of cardiovascular disease. People who never or rarely brushed their teeth were 70% more likely to develop cardiovascular disease than those who brushed twice a day. People with poor oral hygiene also had higher blood levels of a specific chemical marker of inflammation thought to increase risk.

This study did not establish a cause-and-effect relationship between oral health and cardiovascular disease. It is possible that people who brushed their teeth more may simply have lived healthier lives.

However, these findings are in line with other research suggesting a link between gum disease, inflammation and cardiovascular disease. While not proof of a causal relationship, this study does add further weight to the suggestion that brushing may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
