Antiseptic Mouthwash w/ Chlorhexidine Raises Heart Attack Risk, Blood Pressure

Antiseptic Mouthwash w/ Chlorhexidine Raises Heart Attack Risk, Blood Pressure

Antiseptic Mouthwash Raises Heart Attack Risk, Blood Pressure: Chlorhexidine Kills Off ‘Good’ Bacteria That Helps Blood Vessels Relax

(Photo courtesy of Chlorhexidine, a chemical found in antiseptic mouthwashes, is found to kill off “good” bacteria that helps blood vessels relax, increasing users’ heart attack risk.

Antiseptic mouthwash is commonly used to quickly refresh and clean the mouth after brushing your teeth in the morning, after eating, and before going to bed. Frequently replacing mouthwash with toothpaste as a quick fix to kill off lingering germs, however, can become a deadly habit that you may need to spit out. According to a recent study published in the journal Free Radical Biology and Medicine, using a mouthwash twice daily — such as Corsodyl — may increase blood pressure up to 3.5 millimeters of mercury (mmHg), raising your heart attack risk.

High blood pressure (HBP) is a serious condition that can lead to coronary heart disease, heart failure, stroke, and a variety of health issues. In the U.S., approximately one in three adults have HBP, often showing no signs or symptoms, says the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. HBP that stays high over time can damage the body and affects how the blood is pushed against the walls of the arteries while the heart pumps blood. A two point raise in blood pressure can enhance the risk of dying from a stroke by 10 percent, and heart disease by seven percent.

Age, family history, being overweight or obese, and physical inactivity are just some of the risk factors that may trigger HBP. People who are overweight or obese require more blood to provide oxygen and nutrients to their tissues, says the Mayo Clinic, while being physically inactive leads to higher heart rates. The higher a person’s heart rate, the harder the heart must work with each contraction, creating a stronger force on the arteries. These two risk factors go hand-in-hand as a lack of physical activity leads to a higher risk of being overweight. Now a team of researchers at Queen Mary University of London believe using antiseptic mouthwash daily could increase the odds of HBP due to a chemical that kills the “good” bacteria responsible for helping the blood vessels relax.

Professor Amrita Ahluwalia, lead author of the study, and her team of researchers, observed the effects of a chlorhexidine-based antiseptic mouthwash — Corsodyl — by measuring the blood pressure of a small cohort of healthy participants during a two-week period. Chlorhexidine is an antiseptic that treats gingivitis and others problems of the mouth and gums. A total of 19 participants were recruited for the study during an initial seven-day control period followed by a seven-day treatment period with the antiseptic mouthwash. The researchers recorded the oral nitrate-reducing capacity and nitrite levels after each study period.

The findings revealed Cordosyl use retracts the oral bacterial conversion from nitrate to nitrate which reduces the plasma nitrate levels that are associated with increases in blood pressure. The mouthwash led the participants’ blood pressure to rise between 2 to 3.5 mmHg, with a noticeable effect found within one day of using the mouthwash twice.

The study authors believe killing off “good” oral bacteria plays a vital role in determining the plasma nitrate levels, and the bodily control of blood pressure. “Killing off all these bugs each day is a disaster, when small rises in blood pressure have significant impact on morbidity and mortality from heart disease and stroke,” said Ahluwalia, the Daily Mailreported. However, she adds, “We are not telling people to stop using antiseptic mouthwashes if they have a gum or tooth infection — but we would ask why anyone else would want to.”

According to GlaxoSmithKline, Corsodyl manufacturers, the antiseptic mouthwash contains 0.2 percent by volume of chlorhexidine. Corsodyl is recommended for patients with bleeding gums, irritated gums, mouth ulcers and infections, including post-surgery to promote healing, reads the website. The company also makes Corsodyl Daily, which contains 0.06 percent chlorhexidine for everyday use.

The findings of the study do not apply to all mouthwashes because not all mouthwashes contain the chemical chlorhexidine, such as the popular Listerine. The study authors caution other mouthwashes could still produce the same effects as Corsodyl by damaging the mouth’s healthy bacteria.

The American Dental Association does not recommend the use of mouthwash without a dentist’s advice. Depending on each person’s oral hygiene needs, a dentist can suggest using a mouthwash with fluoride or antimicrobial agents as part of their daily oral hygiene routine. Overall, mouthwash users who constantly rely on a battle to hide bad breath should visit their dentist to see if it’s attributed to an underlying cause that could be fixed.

Pro-Fluoridation Editorials Win Pulitzer Prize

Pulitzer Prize Banner

Tampa Bay Times nets Pulitzer for editorials urging return to fluoridation

New York—Confirming the adage that “the pen is mightier than the sword,” the editorials of two staffers at the Tampa Bay Times that helped educate voters in a fight to restore community water fluoridation to Pinellas County, Fla., have netted a Pulitzer Prize.

Editor of editorials Tim Nickens and columnist Daniel Ruth were honored April 15 for a series of 10 editorials over a nearly 14-month period that decried the Pinellas County Commission’s decision to stop fluoridating its water.

The series delved into the campaign of misinformation that antifluoride activists and county commissioners used as the basis of the Oct. 4, 2011, decision to halt fluoridation to some 700,000 residents. It educated readers with the facts and scientific evidence of the safety and efficacy of fluoridation. It examined the effects that discontinuing fluoridation had on the county, including health and financial consequences the decision had on local families as well as on the health department. It also advocated for voters to support county commissioner candidates in favor of fluoridation rather than two incumbents who were instrumental in the decision to stop fluoridating.

“With original reporting and persuasive arguments, Tim Nickens and Dan Ruth educated readers and delivered a clarion call for action on behalf of those who need fluoridated water the most: the poor families and the children of Pinellas County,” said Tampa Bay Times Editor Neil Brown in his letter of nomination. “These editorials produced profound results. In a rare occurrence, voters in November ousted two incumbent commissioners who had voted to stop adding fluoride in the water and replaced them with two candidates who pledged to add it back. In their first meetings after the election, the new commissioners fulfilled their pledge. Another incumbent who was not on the ballot also switched his vote and supported fluoride. A County Commission that had voted 4-3 a year ago to stop adding fluoride voted 6-1 to resume adding it to the drinking water in March 2013.

“Without the Tampa Bay Times editorial board, hundreds of thousands of Pinellas residents still would be deprived of the most effective method of preventing tooth decay,” Mr. Brown said. “The best editorials educate, call for action and achieve results. These editorials achieved all of those goals.”

Mr. Brown’s letter and links to the editorials can be found on the Tampa Bay Times website.

According to the Pulitzer website Mr. Nickens and Mr. Ruth were honored “For distinguished editorial writing, the test of excellence being clearness of style, moral purpose, sound reasoning, and power to influence public opinion in what the writer conceives to be the right direction, using any available journalistic tool.”

The announcement noted that the duo will receive a certificate and $10,000 cash award “for their diligent campaign that helped reverse a decision to end fluoridation of the water supply for the 700,000 residents of the newspaper’s home county.”

Past ADA News stories also chronicled the actions in Pinellas County: “Two Florida cities take two different fluoridation paths,” Nov. 7, 2011 ADA News, and “After one year, the tide turns on fluoridation,” Dec. 10, 2012 ADA News.
