In many cultures, it was thought that different parts of the body are related. Reflexology experts have always said that pressure points on the feet are related may be related to headaches, migraines and other aches and pains in the body. Surgeons have now discovered that the teeth are connected to your heart.
People with good dental hygiene and brushing regularly are less likely to suffer from cardiovascular diseases that can cause heart attacks. The discovery was made by Professor Howard Jenkinson, University of Bristol, while in concert with the Royal College of Surgeons. The discovery was made while they were investigating how blood cells are affected by bacteria.
Approximately 700 types of bacteria can be found in the mouth. People who do not use the toothbrush and do not tend to suffer from lack of dental hygiene. This results in bleeding gums, which are attacked by bacteria. The bacteria enter the bloodstream and is now known to be independent factors that cause heart disease. These independent risk factors for heart disease are caused by bacterial oral infections caused by bacteria such as Streptococcus gordonii and Streptococcus sanguinis.
These findings and to explain why some antibiotics do not work in treating heart disease. Professor Jenkinson and his team are working with Dr. Steve Kerringan trying to develop a solution to the problem. At the same time, recommend that you take care of your teeth by brushing teeth regularly. Teeth care supplies as an electric toothbrush, dental floss, mouthwash and whitening can be useful in the fight against these bacteria.
