Reduce stroke risk factors

Reduce stroke risk factors
11 April 2013

How having your teeth scaled can reduce your chance of having a stoke.

Research recently published in the International Journal of Cardiology showed that patients who had a scale and polish at least once a year were a third less likely to develop an abnormal heartbeat.  An irregular heartbeat is a major stroke risk factor.

The more frequently they had a scale the bigger the benefits.  It is thought bacteria increases the rate at which arteries get blocked.
