Your dental health affects more than just your teeth and gums. In recent years, research has shown that dental health is linked to overall health. Dental health is linked to respiratory infections, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, poor nutrition, and other health conditions.
Most oral health issues can be prevented. Keep your teeth healthy for life - brush two times a day, floss once a day, visit with your dental professional regularly, and eat vegetables and fruit.
