You're good Alabama, but West Va may have you beat when it comes to toothless wonders.

Well, since tooth loss is usually caused by gingivitis (which has long been linked to heart disease), this is hardly surprising.

i wonder what the methcanistic reason behind this all is?

Tooth loss is a couple steps down the chain, but yeah, there's some correlation in that they're both effects of the same cause.

I rather suspect both are related to not taking care of one's body.

I'm at 28 of 32, my wisdom teeth were pulled when they came in.
She's at 30 of 30 although the two wisdom teeth she has never came in.

I guess we will live long.

Joke's on you, subby; they don't have hospitals in Alabama.

More likely people who in general take crap care of themselves have:
a. lousy oral hygeine
b. lousy decisions in nutrition and exercise.

Please feel free to pick on Alabama all you want, but don't forget Tennessee and Mississippi.

People who don't take care of their health are unhealthy. More at 11.

We all know that oral hygiene or lack thereof is an indicator of other problems, if nothing else than because it shows one to have bad habits. More interesting would be if one causes the other. Like, if your gums are more prone to recede because you have high blood pressure. Or vice versa.

Now if we could just figure out what causes teeth to fall out, we could figure out why fatties keep dropping dead of heart attacks.


Oh wait...

Who'd thunk that people who can't afford dental care would also be unable to afford general health care.

"Keeping teeth and gums healthy is important for your overall health," the heart association's statement begins. "However, an American Heart Association expert committee -- made up of cardiologists, dentists and infectious diseases specialists -- found no conclusive scientific evidence that gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, causes or increases the rates of cardiovascular diseases. Current data don't indicate whether regular brushing and flossing or treatment of gum disease can cut the incidence of atherosclerosis, the narrowing of the arteries that can cause heart attacks and strokes."

Amen
