MOUTH, MIND, AND BODY MATTERS!

  • Your mouth is a window into what's going on in the rest of your body.

  • Taking good care of your mouth, teeth and gums can help prevent bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease—and can help you keep your teeth as you get older.

  • An unhealthy mouth, especially if you have gum disease, may increase your risk of serious health problems such as heart attack, stroke, poorly controlled diabetes and preterm labor.

  • In fact, more than 90 percent of all systemic diseases show their first signs in the mouth.
