Yes, brushing your teeth can help reduce your risk of heart disease. Such a simple and twice daily ritual (we hope) can actually have a tremendous impact on your overall health. It’s the whole mouth bone connected to the Knee bone thing again, but the message bears repeating.
And please, don’t just take our word for it; listen to some MDs that have Oprah’s ear.
In a new study, women who’d seen a dentist in the previous two years were at least one-third less likely to have a heart attack, stroke, chest pain or congestive heart failure. (Dental care didn’t seem to protect men’s hearts, which leads researchers to think that either gum disease is especially risky for women or that men were just too far gone.)
