Dental care is often the forgotten part of a healthy lifestyle. Oral disease can affect a person’s speech, appearance, health, and quality of life. Regular dental care is not only important to maintain the health of your teeth, but also your entire body. Poor oral and dental health can result in serious infections of the mouth, teeth, and body.
