The conclusion of both studies is that oral hygiene matters. To many, this means more brushing and flossing, and visits to the dentist.
It seems this is a simplistic, if not unhelpful, conclusion. Most strokes occur in Seniors, a time of life when oral hygiene suffers for a number of reasons and when oral inflammation sets in.
Managing extra-ordinary concentrations of Streptococcal bacteria in the mouth, or other inflammatory bacteria, is not something the Senior is able to accomplish — just like many cannot manage other modifiable risk factors for stroke such as hypertension.
This is why CHX is working with a chain of medical clinics to integrate Prevora into the medical journey of our Seniors.
