Bad breath and gum disease are well known as consequences of poor dental hygiene. Not brushing regularly can also result in tooth discoloration, and tooth discoloration can effect self image.

Did you know that studies show there are also other possible effects–some more serious than tooth decay and gum disease? A 20-year study looking at psychological, medical and oral health in Danish men and women showed some interesting correlations. The study began in 1964 and ended in 1984, when the subjects were all over the age of 70.

Here’s what was discovered:

Cognitive function was shown to be impaired in those who had gum disease. Study participants were nine times more likely to have a score in the lower range of the cognitive test – the “digit symbol test” (DST) – if they had inflammation of the gums. Look for further study of this subject in the future.


Today there’s even more support for good dental hygiene. But even if you brush regularly, you still wont remove all of the stains caused by foods, beverages, coffee or tea. If you smoke, you’re likely to have even more to battle.
