Oral Health - Overall Health

It is said the eyes are the window to the soul...

But did you know your oral health is the window to your overall health?


The MDS publication, Oral Health is Overall Health, focuses on the importance of regular oral care and how it relates to your physical health. Your teeth and gums hold important clues to other health issues. So if you're interested in maintaining good overall health as well as your smile, visit your dentist for a checkup and cleaning at least twice a year.


In addition, click here to read an article entitled "A Healthy Mouth Can Mean a Healthier You" that was published in the Summer-Fall 2007 issue of the MDS consumer publication Word of Mouth.


By educating you on the association between your oral health and your overall health, you'll understand that a healthy mouth is connected to a healthier you.
