Look at that smile
Did you know ... that dental health is important not just for your teeth, but also for your heart, lungs and the child a woman is carrying? Poor dental health can increase your risk of heart disease, can complicate anesthesia, can increase the risk of dementia, can spread infections from gums to heart valves and joint replacements, and can lead to low birth weight of newborns if the mother had dental disease during pregnancy.
A beautiful smile is important, but the rest of you can benefit from twice yearly dental checkups and cleanings. Don't forget to brush those choppers twice per day too.
