Your mouth is a mirror for your general health.
Dental and oral health goes beyond healthy teeth; oral health is integral to your overall health and well-being. Oral diseases can cause serious health problems and be very expensive to correct, especially if they're not caught early.
Even more importantly, dental disease can cause health problems that go way beyond the mouth. In fact, research has shown that there are some types of oral disease that may lead to serious health problems such as diabetes, heart and lung disease, stroke, and low-birth weight or premature births.
