It was noted the increase in blood pressure, which can be maintained for several hours after the procedure. Only the study involved 19 people. Their pressure has increased at an average of 2-3 .5 units.

Scientists state the fact: this surge in pressure increases the risk of death from heart disease by 7%. For rinsing in the experiment was used chlorhexidine 0.2 percent. This antiseptic effectively copes with microbes. It is noted that the constant rinsing reduce the production of nitrite, necessary for the functioning of vessels, microorganisms 90%.
