Brushing your teeth prevents more than just cavities. It can also prevent heart attacks. This news was confirmed by a recently published article in the British Medical Journal.
Authors studied 11,000 people who were part of the Scottish Health Survey, which lasted more than 8 years. During that time 555 heart attacks occurred and 170 people died from heart attacks within the study.
Brushing teeth was broken down into three categories, those who: brushed less than once a day, brushed once a day and brushed twice a day. Those who didn't brush their teeth daily were more than twice as likely to experience a heart attack compared with those who brushed twice a day.
So, brush your teeth twice a day. It will brighten your smile and keep you smiling for years to come!
