Daly City Dental News: Regular Cleanings And Heart Health

Daly City Dental News Regular Cleanings And Heart Health

Visiting Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City for regular dental check-ups and cleanings every six months can seem inconvenient and unnecessary at times, but you may benefit in important ways you never imagined.

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.

While the study could simply confirm that those San Francisco people who dutifully schedule regular dental cleanings also practice healthy habits like exercising and eating right, there is additional evidence of a relationship between oral health and heart health.

Common problems like inflammation with gum disease are linked to hardening of the arteries and other tissue inflammations which can lead to heart attacks and strokes.

Former American Heart Association President Ralph Sacco, MD, (who did not participate in the study mentioned previously) said:

‘Something as simple as having good dental hygiene – brushing, flossing, and having regular cleanings – may be good for your heart and brain health.’1

While the study found that patients who schedule cleanings yearly reap the most health benefits, Kenneth Hovden of Kenneth Hovden DDS recommends coming in for check-ups and cleanings every six months to catch potential problems early, saving Daly City patients time and money. Regular dental cleanings also brighten and whiten teeth, making your smile look its best.
