A HEALTHY MOUTH IS ABOUT MORE THAN A BEAUTIFUL SMILE
Your mouth is the gateway to your health.
Regular check-ups with your dentist can reveal more than just cavities. Studies show a link between common oral health problems and chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and elevated risk for stroke.
Follow these tips to keep you smiling from the inside out:
· Brush at least twice daily.
· Floss daily to eliminate plaque and maintain healthy gums.
· Eat healthfully. Be mindful of what foods you eat and how often you eat them.
