For those who do not like to brush your teeth: undeniable benefits of this procedure daily!

From school biology course you probably know that the bacteria are good and bad. Here are just those that are harmful to our body, tend to accumulate in the oral cavity and provoke a bunch of various diseases such as atherosclerosis. Yes, on the development of the disease affects not only smoking, stress and unhealthy diet, but not in time of cleaning your teeth! Where is my toothbrush?

Medical statistics says that people who suffer from periodontitis (inflammation root shell teeth and radicular tissue), more likely to suffer from diseases of the cardiovascular system. What is the connection between them? In vsëm blame those same bacteria that cause exactly the lion's share of dental and oral mucosa.

During the experiment, one of the bacteria called Porphyromonas gingivalis, were infected mice susceptible to atherosclerosis. It was found that the animals began to appear active characteristic changes in blood vessel walls, which later gave rise to atheromatous plaque.

It turns out that the bacteria sitting in the mouth, irritating receptors, causing the cells to throw out inflammatory signals that are carried through the blood vessels. Of course, P. gingivalis alone is unlikely to provoke atherosclerosis, but if a person is also still feeds and incorrectly (as well as smoking or just genetically predisposed, such as those of the experimental mice), then why not?

Doctors admit that the new results give them one more reason for the suppression of bad inflammation. After all, the more we know about the molecular chain is involved in a particular disease-causing process, the more accurately we can act on it. And in the case of multifactorial diseases such as atherosclerosis, is particularly important.

It is also worth remembering another bacterium that lives in the mouth called Streptococcus mutans. That it forms plaque. Separating the acid streptococcus destroys tooth enamel and provokes a regular visit to the dentist. But it happens that S. mutans is not limited exclusively to the mouth. If the microbe enters the bloodstream, it can easily get to the heart, and this is where the trouble starts is more serious than the plaque. Streptococcus vigorously propagated in the heart valves, which leads to inflammation of the inner lining of the heart. And it is fraught with fatal!

In general, regular cleaning of teeth can not only protect you from tooth decay, but also by serious problems with the cardiovascular system. Your friends do not like to brush your teeth? Be sure to tell them about the serious consequences it can lead. Get rid of excess plaque on the teeth, and with it the health problems!
