I don’t know if you spotted it in the news last week but a new study has found that those who fail to keep their teeth clean are at greater risk of suffering from heart problems. Researchers from University College in London analyzed data from more than 11,000 people and found that those who never or rarely brush their teeth are 70% more likely to suffer heart disease than those who brush twice a day.
The reason? Seemingly, inflammation in the body, including that around the teeth (caused by gum disease), has an important role in the build up of clogged arteries, which can lead to a heart attack.
The solution, of course, is simple. Make sure you polish those pearlies – and for the minimum 2 minutes, twice a day recommended by dentists.
It’s a good idea, too, to use an electric toothbrush like this one since they tend to deliver better brushing and have built in controls to ensure you do it for exactly the right amount of time. Another good tip is to switch to a non-foaming toothpaste like RetarDEX Toothpaste. I’ve discovered that if you a non-foaming paste you naturally brush for longer because you don’t end up feeling like a dog with rabies after thirty seconds. Now, where did I leave that toothbrush….?

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move.
