Daily Oral Hygiene: Put Your Heart Into It

Top La Jolla Family Dentists

In this message from Weston Spencer DDS in La Jolla, we remind you of the link between your dental health and your overall health.

Scientists, dentists, and cardiologists have known for years that there is a connection between gum disease and heart problems. However, a recent study analyzed oral health habits and heart disease risk.

Science Daily reported on the study, which analyzed the date from more than 11,000 adult subjects.

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.

The survey is one of many that validates the link between oral health and overall vitality. Simply put: you aren’t healthy unless your gums and teeth are healthy.

At Weston Spencer DDS in La Jolla, we want all our patients to have long, healthy lives. That includes having great dental health! Brush and floss every day, and see us for regular checkups. Our patients come to us from Solano Beach, Del Mar, and Claremont for general and cosmetic dentistry, and much more. Call our office to schedule your next appointment today!
