White Plains Dental News: Poor Oral Health And Heart Disease

October 28th, 2016

Top White Plains Family Dentists Attention White Plains dental patients: brushing twice daily may help lower your risk of heart disease. New York scientists, dentists, and cardiologists have known for many years that there is a link between inflammation in the mouth (gum disease) and heart problems, However, a recent study analyzed oral health habits and heart disease risk. Science Daily reported on the study which was published in the British Medical Journal.

I quote from the Science Daily article:

“The authors, led by Professor Richard Watt from University College London, analyzed data from over 11,000 adults who took part in a Scottish Health Survey. The research team analyzed data about lifestyle behaviors such as smoking, physical activity, and oral health routines.”

“Once the data was adjusted for established cardio risk factors, the researchers found that participants who reported less frequent toothbrushing had a 70 percent extra risk of heart disease compared to individuals who brushed their teeth twice a day.”

I am cosmetic dentist Ira Handschuh DDS of The Dental Design Center. The Scottish survey is one of many that confirms the link between oral health and overall energy. Simply put: you aren’t healthy unless your gums and teeth are healthy.

It doesn’t matter if you are a lean White Plains distance runner with a pulse of fifteen beats a minute and a blood pressure of 100 over 60. It doesn’t matter if you are a NYC vegan who has eaten a nutritionally balanced, low-fat diet for the past five years. If you have inflamed gums and tooth decay, you are at risk for harmful issues in other areas of the body.

The phone number for The Dental Design Center is 914-574-2558. If you have concerns about your oral health, I invite you to schedule an examination today.

Perhaps your teeth and gums are healthy but you wish your smile were more attractive. We can help you there also with a smile redesign. Porcelain veneers, crowns, inlays/onlays, and orthodontia are all available to solve any cosmetic troubles you wish to have fixed.
