Fun Fact: Your mouth is the access point into your body and is an essential part of your general health and well-being. Good oral health helps protect your body by reducing the risk of some infections and diseases. There is a direct correlation between our oral health and major chronic diseases, including diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
