Oral Health: A Window Into Your Well-Being
Bad breath is usually a sign you aren’t brushing your teeth or flossing regularly – but an unhealthy mouth can be a sign of more serious health problems. Many systemic diseases (those that affect the whole body) have oral manifestations such as swollen gums, mouth ulcers or a dry mouth. Sometimes diseases can first be detected orally before other symptoms are discovered, allowing for early diagnosis and treatment. Therefore, paying close attention to oral health is crucial.
