Which tooth is connected to the heart?
Wisdom teeth are connected to the central nervous system including the heart, liver, and intestines. They can signal high blood pressure, headaches, liver disease, pain, and cardiovascular disease.
Studies have shown that gum disease has been linked to heart disease and diabetes. Having poor gum health can allow for bacteria to enter your bloodstream and cause problems for not just your teeth but your heart too.
Make sure to schedule your regular cleaning to prevent poor dental hygiene and promote heart health.
