Research is beginning to see a connection between the health of the oral cavity and the cardiovascular system.
Several species of bacteria that cause periodontitis (gum infection) have been found in the atherosclerotic plaque in arteries of the heart and elsewhere. When the plaque builds up it can lead to a heart attack.
Harvard University also believes that the toxins released by this oral bacteria could harm blood vessels or cause blood clots. In addition, any inflammation of the mouth, which can be caused by bacteria, can increase inflammation throughout the body, including in the arteries - increasing the risk of a heart attack or stroke.
Daily Tongue Scraping is an easy way to reduce the bacteria, lower levels of inflammation, and possibly prevent any infection from taking place.
