Emergency dentistry news: Flossing prevents tooth loss


Emergency dentistry news: Flossing prevents tooth lossGood oral health maintained by flossing may reduce the likelihood of undergoing emergency dentistry and limit the chances of a stroke, new research has suggested.

Japanese researchers have found that the possibility of having a stroke is linked to tooth loss occurring as a result of poor dental hygiene.

The study, conducted at Hiroshima University and reported on the Cosmetic Dentistry Guide website, found that people with less than 24 of their own teeth were faced with a 60 per cent higher chance of suffering from a stroke than those who had more natural teeth.

According to the website, a number of serious illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease can be linked to dental health and people with unhealthy teeth and gums are also at greater risk of requiring emergency dental procedures.

Dr Nigel Carter, chief executive of the British Dental Foundation, also attributes a healthy diet to better dental hygiene.

He said: "A diet rich in vitamins, minerals and fresh produce can help to prevent gum disease, a disease which can in turn, pose more significant risks to your overall health."ADNFCR-2621-ID-800483300-ADNFCR
