Regular brushing prevents the increase in blood pressure.
A team of researchers from the University of Buffalo examined data 36 500 older women and found that tooth loss increases the likelihood of developing cardiovascular disease by 20 %, reports the Daily Mail.
One possible explanation is that the people who lose their teeth can change your diet to softer and more processed foods.
In this study, doctors monitored the performance of the American women for over 18 years.
Participants in the initiative every year went through an initial assessment of gingival health between 1998 and 2015 is to identify high blood pressure levels.
Interestingly, the relationship between hypertension and lack of teeth was stronger among young women and women with lower BMI (body mass index).
There are several possible reasons. Earlier studies have shown that tooth loss reduces chewing, which reduces blood circulation.
Surprisingly, unlike previous studies, have found no connection between gum disease and hypertension.
The results of this study suggest that women of postmenopausal age, losing teeth can enter into the risk group for high blood pressure.
The findings also indicate that tooth loss can cause the development of hypertension. This allows for a number of preventive measures to reduce the risk of developing the disease.
Further studies will help to determine the basic mechanisms underlying these two common diseases.
It should be noted that poor dental hygiene is associated with a number of potentially fatal diseases, including heart disease and cancer. It is believed that bacteria in the gums can enter the bloodstream and travel to other parts of the body, causing inflammation.
Recall that regular brushing and flossing reduces the likelihood of developing hypertension.
As reported by the portal “Znayu” the researchers believe that a small snack before bed does not affect the health, and sometimes even quite useful.
Also “Znayu” I wrote, scientists have discovered a new molecule which will help to cure heart failure.
