Good Dental Health Lower Risk Of Having Heart Attack In Women

Posted by Z Dental Group - February 10th, 2011

According to scientific research, there appears to be a connection between dental hygiene and heart health in women.

A study conducted by researchers at the University of California at Berkeley School of Public Health found that women who visited the dentist regularly lowered their risk of having a heart attack.

Statistics from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute show the No. 1 cause of death in women is heart disease, and 23 percent of women die within one year of a first recognized heart attack.

Therefore, dental hygiene may be one way to protect women from the risk of a heart attack.

There is a known relationship between inflammation in blood vessels and cardiovascular disease, including heart attacks. One hypothesis to explain the connection between good dental hygiene and reduced heart disease is the reduction of bacteria in the bloodstream that can lead to inflammation.

It’s important to know the symptoms of a heart attack for women, which can be different from those experienced by men.

Heart attack symptoms in women include:

• Shortness of breath
• Extreme fatigue or inability to perform daily activities as usual
• Nausea
• Light-headedness
• Cold sweats
• Heart palpitations
• Pain, tightness or pressure in the chest area
• Discomfort in other areas, including pain or discomfort in one or both arms (especially the left arm), the back, between the shoulder blades, neck, jaw, teeth or abdomen
• Heartburn or indigestion

Women often hesitate or fail to call 911 when they experience heart attack symptoms. Most feel they are not really having a heart attack, do not want to raise a false alarm or self-diagnose themselves as having heartburn or other minor health issues. If you even think you are having a heart attack, call 911. Remember, time lost is heart muscle lost.
