Flossing ‘could help people remember more’

Mon

Flossing teeth could help prevent memory loss.

Research carried out in the US has pointed to a link between regularly flossing and improvements in memory.

ABC Local reported that gum disease could be a contributory factor to mental decline in old age and, as such, maintaining a good oral health routine and flossing daily could significantly improve a person’s memory as they get older.

“Researchers looked at a group of men and women over age 60 and what they found was that those who scored lowest on tests of math and memory had been exposed to greater amounts of bacteria that are known to cause gum disease,” commented Jenny Cook, executive editor of Good Housekeeping magazine.

Elsewhere, Dentistry IQ reported that Chicago periodontist Dr Robert Pick has claimed that individuals worried about their oral health should ensure they floss regularly.

He said that poor oral health is a contributory factor to cardiovascular disease and this accounts for the deaths of more than 2,400 people per day.

‘Take the time’ to look after teeth

People should ensure they look after their oral health.

Busy people should take the time to look after their teeth properly, it has been argued.

Michael Thomas, from the Wessex Dental Specialist Centre, claimed having the forethought to stay on top of dental health issues will help people avoid costly and painful emergency dentistry treatments in the future and could help them keep a bright and appealing smile for the rest of their life.

He said: “As the mouth is the gateway to the body, a healthy mouth will be part of having a healthy body and leading a healthy lifestyle.”

Elsewhere, Dentistry IQ recently reported that Chicago periodontist Dr Robert Pick has stated that people should be aware of the dangers of not flossing regularly, as this can lead to gingivitis and other periodontal diseases.

Indeed, he claimed poor oral health is a contributory factor to cardiovascular disease and this accounts for the deaths of more than 2,400 people per day.
