Connection Between Oral Health And Stroke


Posted on 6/19/2023 by Bryan Neu
Connection Between Oral Health And StrokeAlthough it is common knowledge that neglecting your teeth may negatively affect your heart, you may not know the relationship between poor dental hygiene and stroke. Recent studies have shown that those who don't care about their dental health are more likely to have a stroke than those who do.

Poor Oral Health May Cause Cardiovascular Issues


Gum disease is a bacterial infection of the gums and supporting bone that may develop due to neglecting one's dental hygiene. A higher risk of stroke is associated with this inflammation's ability to spread throughout the body, creating a state of chronic inflammation.

The bacteria that cause gum disease may also enter the circulation and spread to other body regions, including the brain. The result may be the creation of blood clots, which may cut off the blood supply to the brain and result in a stroke.

The risk of gum disease and other oral health disorders, which may increase the risk of stroke, can be reduced by maintaining excellent oral health practices, such as brushing twice a day, flossing frequently, and seeing the dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings.

Prioritizing your dental health is especially crucial if you already suffer from a disease that raises your stroke risk, such as high blood pressure or diabetes. Collaborate with your doctor and dentist to create a strategy for your health that considers every facet of your well-being.

Maintaining good dental hygiene is vital to your teeth and gums and affects your general well-being. Regular dental care is essential to lower your risk of stroke and other.
