Why it Matters


Taking care of your mouth is about more than a nice smile. According to the Mayo Clinic and the ADA, oral health may be linked to a number of other health conditions:

Cardiovascular disease: Some research shows that heart disease, clogged arteries, and stroke may be linked to oral health.

Diabetes: Diabetes increases the risk of gum disease, cavities, tooth loss, and some oral infections. Poor oral health can make it harder to control diabetes.

Osteoporosis: The first stage of bone loss may show up in your teeth. Your dentist may be able to spot this during a routine exam and X-rays.

Pregnancy and birth: Gum disease has been linked to premature birth, so it's vital to maintain good oral health before and during pregnancy.
