A recent study has definitively linked losing teeth with higher chances of developing coronary heart disease (CHD). This 18-year project illustrated that those who lost two or more teeth were 23 per cent more likely to develop heart conditions. Other takeaway points included:

– Those who lost one tooth were not at a significantly higher risk.

– A dentist can help diagnose the extent of oral health issues.

“The researchers were able to assess tooth loss over a period of 8 years.”
