Within the scope of the study, a team of researchers analyzed data from 161,286 participants of the Korean National Health Insurance System aged 40–79 without diagnoses of atrial fibrillation or heart failure. The participants of the above study underwent a routine medical examination in 2003–2004.

The analysis of the available data showed that people who brushed their teeth three or more times per day had a 10% lower risk of atrial fibrillation and a 12% lower risk of heart failure during the follow-up period which continued for 10 years 6 months.

Senior study author Dr. Tae-Jin Song of Ewha Womans University in Seoul, Korea noted that the analysis was limited to one country and as an observational study does not prove causation, but he also added that they studied a large group over a long period, which adds strength to our findings.
