Dr. Oz: Brush Your Teeth to Improve Heart Health [VIDEO]

Your dentist has been stressing the importance of brushing and flossing as long as you can remember. Your cardiologist may give you the same advice! New studies indicate that having gum disease may quadruple your risk of stroke, and can greatly increase your chances of having a heart attack.

My wife sat the family down last night, and insisted that we watch a segment on Good Morning America which featured Dr. Mehmet Oz, and revealed a few other surprises as well. When should you brush your teeth in the morning? After breakfast? As soon as you get up? Hit the jump to get the answer, and watch the informative video.

According to Dr. Oz, the best time in the morning to brush your teeth is immediately after you get up. Shocker! I’ve always waited until after breakfast, in order to brush away food particles. But Oz advises the importance of brushing away plaque and bacteria that’s built up overnight, and also warns that you should wait 30 minutes after meals before brushing.
