There’s more to good oral health than a bright smile. The health of your mouth and teeth is directly connected to your overall health, not to mention the quality of your life.
We are what we eat, right? But in order to eat, everything must pass through our mouths. It’s no wonder that problems with our teeth and gums can adversely affect our overall health.
Cavities, tooth loss and periodontal disease (gum disease) can not only contribute to certain health issues, such as heart disease, they can also limit what you eat, how you smile, or even how you speak. Poor oral health can be costly to your long-term health, your lifestyle and your finances.

Committing yourself to even a few of these tips will go a long way towards keeping your teeth, and your family’s teeth, healthy for life.
