Tooth-Brushing Can Cause Epileptic Seizures? Stephen Fung March 8, 2007 An Australian team of neurobiologists have discovered that the rhythmic action of tooth-brushing can trigger seizures in epilepsy sufferers. This unusual observation will allow a better understanding of this condition and constitutes a progress towards more effective treatments. Brushing teeth can trigger epileptic seizures in people with damage to a small, specific spot in the brain, Australian researchers have discovered. The breakthrough in this rare trigger will help neurologists understand how the most common triggers – sleep and stress – can spark fits. Source: The Australian Share This With The World!
