Researchers have found that people with a bad tooth had an increased chance of getting cardiovascular diseases. Dr. Barbara Taylor, Dentist and Geoffrey Tofler, Cardiologist with colloboration with scientists from University of Oslo, Norway have found that gum disease is linked to occurrence of heart diseases such as strokes and heart attacks. Gum disease occurs due to non-maintenance of tooth surface, which requires daily brushing and rinsing after food which clears the bacteria which covers the tooth surface, if this bacteria is not cleared it causes gum inflammation and gum diseases. The study results found that people with worst gum disease had severe heart problems and early treatment of gum diseases reduced the risk of heart attack incidence. Scientists have found that inflammation in gums related to occurrence of clotting risk factors in bloods and suggests that having a healthy tooth check up and cleaning can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
