Put Some Teeth Into Your Healthy Heart Program

It pays to go to the dentist for regular checkups and cleaning! According to the American Academy of Periodontology, such common dental conditions as gingivitis, cavities, and missing teeth are as good as cholesterol levels at predicting the risk of heart disease. The probable reason for the connection is that bacteria from your mouth can enter your bloodstream through your gums. And since bacteria can collect in artery walls and cause blockages, strokes can result.

Keep brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day…that’s what the experts say!
