A study of more than a million people in South Korea for nearly twelve years revealed that people who brush their teeth three or three times a day are more prone to heart burn and The risk of a heart attack is also very low.
According to a report published in the latest issue of the European Journal of Pr-Venture Cardiology, this study was conducted on people aged 40 to 79 who had never complained of heart-attack or or had a heart attack.
The population was 161,286 who were included as volunteers in 2003 and 2004 for this study.
Each of these volunteers was kept in regular observation over the next 10 and a half years, keeping in mind their general lifestyle, weight, illness and general hygiene habits .
At the end of the study, it was found that volunteers who had their teeth cleaned three or more times a day, had an average of 10% chance of having heartburn or heart attack, and a 12% chance of having a heart attack. Why did this happen? Little is currently known about this, but it is estimated that harmful microbes (bacteria) in the mouth do not increase their numbers due to repeated teeth cleansing. Otherwise their numbers increase in the mouth and they enter the bloodstream in the stomach; and can be harmful to the blood vessels from the heart to the heart.
Some experts believe that the role of dental hygiene in the health of the heart is getting stronger over time, but it is premature to say that keeping the teeth clean protects the heart. More research is needed to come to this final conclusion.
It is important to note that uncontrolled heartbeat is called “arterial fibrillation” in medical language which can cause sudden heart failure, stroke and dementia.
