Heart-to-Heart Connection

To inspire and be inspired!

Tooth Health = Heart Health

Studies have shown bad gums are responsible for increasing your risk for heart disease and stroke by 280 percent!

According to medical journal, Circulation (Feb 2008), bacteria travels from the mouth to arteries and veins, then to all parts of the body — even to the brain!

Solution: Create an environment difficult for deadly bacteria to grow — brush, floss, irrigate.  Remove plaque often. Not to mention enough rest, friends and family, hobbies, and passion.  Oh, and remember your Tooth Tunes — two minutes of continuous music while you brush (available at your local drug stores)!
