Midtown Manhattan Dentist: Dental Visits May Reduce Heart Disease in Women Says Oral Hygiene Study at UC Berkeley

Regular visits to dentist can pay off for women in several ways.  In addition to having beautiful looking teeth and a great smile, women who visit the dentist regularly also may have less heart problems.  A new dental study by UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health claims that women who make regular visits to a dentist and practice good oral hygiene reduce the risk of heart attacks and other cardiovascular problems by 33%.

The dental study examined men and women who visited a dentist during the previous two years compared with men and women who had not visited the dentist.

Researchers found a correlation between women who visited the dentist and women who did not have a visit to the dentist.  There was no such benefit found for men who visited the dentist and those who did not visit the dentist.   The dental study suggested that estrogen in women helped to prevent heart disease.

There have been several studies linking dental care and cardiovascular disease, but this study boasts that it is the first study to show that general dental care can lead to a reduction in heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiovascular problems.

This dental longitudinal study followed the same people over time.  Subjects were studied over time and were categorized based on whether they had visited the dentist and whether or not they experienced heart problems.
