Visiting Designer Smiles in Fargo for a dental checkup and cleaning every six months may seem inconvenient sometimes, but you may benefit in ways you’d never imagine.
A recent study showed that people who had their teeth professionally cleaned at least once every two years were 24 percent less likely to have a heart attack, compared to those who skipped appointments.
Not only that, but brushing your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes may lower your risk of heart disease. The study says that people who brushed less than twice a day, and for less than two minutes, were three times as likely to have heart issues than those who brushed at least twice, and for at least two minutes.
A cardiologist who was not part of the study said it’s possible that those who are attentive to their dental health may simply be more health conscious overall.
Still, researchers believe it strengthens the notion that there is a clear link between your dental health and your overall health.
