Researchers are looking at what causes at heart attack. It seems that bad  cholesterol and narrowing of the arteries is the chief culprit. New research has found that people who have gum disease are more likely to suffer a heart attack.

People with periodontitus, a type of gum disease, are also more likely to suffer from type 2 diabetes. A common factor is an inability to metabolise sugar sugar efficiently, and of course diabetes is an inability to tolerate glucose at all.

People with the disorder are twice as likely to suffer a heart attack.This finding means that dentists can often see clues to what’s happening inn a patient’s health,and doctor’s should also be checking the health of their patient’s gums in an effort to spot possible problems before they occur.

Most of us visit the dentist regularly and maybe you should be asking more questions about the health of your gums, even to the point of the dentist recommending a blood test if gum disease is seen to be becoming worse.

Heart attacks are responsible for many deaths in the UK, and maybe some of those could be prevented with a more vigilant approach to dental health. It has also been noted that people with severe gum disease can also be susceptible to liver cancer.

From many different health angles, it could be more than just a regular dental check up, it could be a life saver.
