Brushing your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes may lower the risk of cardiovascular disease! Periodontal (gum) disease is one of the most common infections in the human body. People affected by gum disease don’t just risk bad breath, bleeding gums, and tooth loss, but they are also more likely to have heart disease than those with healthy gums. Plaque and tartar create bacteria in the mouth that can make its way into the bloodstream, leading to heart problems such as plaque buildup in the arteries. By creating great oral habits such as brushing and flossing regularly and visiting us every six months to help remove plaque and tartar, you can have great oral and heart health!
