Bacteria from gum disease can enter your bloodstream, which causes your white blood cells to release clotting factors that contribute to both heart attacks and strokes.
Call to Action:
- To reduce your risk of gum disease, brush your teeth properly at least twice daily and have regular dental check-ups at least every 6 months.
- Brush your teeth thoroughly for 2 to 3 minutes with a toothbrush that has a small head, which will easily reach into the corners of your mouth.
- To brush your teeth properly, hold a soft bristled brush at a 45-degree angle to your teeth and gums and use gentle back and forth strokes. Hold it vertically to clean the inside surfaces of your front teeth.
