Women Who Visit the Dentist Have Lower Heart Disease Risk

If any dental professionals out there have been noticing a slump in patient volume, this new study could help get your patients into the office more regularly. Published in the journal of Health Economics,the study suggests that women who get regular dental care reduce their risks of heart attacks, stroke and other cardiovascular problems by at least one-third. The analysis used data from 7,000 people between the ages of 44-88 enrolled in the Health and Retirement Study, and there was no similar benefit found for men.

Timothy Brown, the lead study author and assistant adjunct professor at UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health was quoted to say, “Many studies have found associations between dental care and cardiovascular disease, but our study is the first to show that general dental care leads to fewer heart attacks, strokes, and other adverse cardiovascular outcomes in a causal way.”

The study also suggests that for dental care to have a proactive effect on heart disease, it should occur early in the development of the disease.

If the word of this new study is already giving your clinic a boom in patients and you need dentist supplies on the fly, remember that DealOnDental.com is the best place for dental supplies wholesale!
