Dental exam reveals stroke risk

More than 60% of deaths from stroke in the US occur among postmenopausal women. Many of them have no warning symptoms. So how can women at risk be detected?//

One way may be through having regular and thorough dental exams. A warning sign of stroke risk is atheroma - fatty deposits in the carotid arteries serving the brain. This can be picked up through a dental x-ray. Researchers in California have assessed dental x-rays and medical records of 52 women of average age 70. Sixteen of these women had atheroma in the neck and their histories revealed a number of risk factors, like obesity, smoking and high cholesterol.

Dental examination are an easy way of detecting the problem.These patients are at a higher risk of stroke.
