Brushing teeth regularly for at least 2 minutes may keep your heart healthy.

The research reports released by the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the American Heart Association supports the claim.

The research reports released by the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the American Heart Association supports the claim.According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, poor oral health is causing cardiovascular disease. As per the study, to improve oral health one needs to avoid cariogenic food (sugar) and should brush the teeth at least twice a day and regular flossing.

The American Heart Association (AHA) conducted new research about tooth-brushing habits linked to lower heart risk. The researchers asked 682 people about their tooth-brushing behaviour after they found those who have brushed less than twice a day for less than two minutes, they had a three-fold increased risk compared to those who brushed at least twice a day.

The Oral Health Foundation research states that regular brushing of teeth for enough time can decrease the risk of developing heart problems by as much as three times.
