Effects of Oral Health on Overall Health
“Oral health is not only important to your appearance and sense of well – being, but also to your overall health. Cavities and gum disease may contribute to many serious conditions, such as diabetes and respiratory diseases. Untreated cavities can also be painful and lead to serious infections.”
