Your oral health isn’t just about your teeth and gums – it could be a window into your overall well-being. At Jordan Dental, we believe in the power of routine dental check-ups to uncover potential systemic health issues, including hypertension (high blood pressure).

A recent study featured in the Journal of Periodontology, sheds light on the connection between oral hygiene and high blood pressure. Researchers analyzed data from nearly 20,000 adults surveyed in the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES). The findings? Individuals with poor oral hygiene habits, like irregular brushing, were more likely to have hypertension. On the flip side, those who brushed their teeth more than once a day and used additional oral health products, such as floss or mouthwash, had lower odds of hypertension. This suggests that maintaining good oral hygiene practices could play a role in preventing or managing high blood pressure.

Taking care of your oral health is key to living a healthy life, and regular dental visits are an integral part of that. Schedule an appointment with Jordan Dental of Vadalia for a comprehensive examination and cleaning. Let’s work together to ensure your oral health is in top shape and potentially decrease your risk of hypertension. Your well-being matters to us!
