The Tooth About Heart Health

Here’s a seldom known fact about our heart health you may not have heard. There is a relationship between our oral health and our heart health!

In fact, one study suggests that brushing our teeth twice a day for at least two minutes may lower our risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Dr. Nitza Alvarez, cardiologist at Tri-County Heart Institute explains how our oral health can have an impact on our cardiovascular health.

Also, If you’re looking for more ways to a healthier heart, you can join Dr. Alvarez every second Saturday of the month for Walk With a Doc. Participants will enjoy a brief presentation on an important health topic followed by a “walk-at-your-own-pace” lead by Dr. Alvarez.
