Dental Myth #1: “Dental health doesn’t affect my overall health”
Fact: The mouth is an integral part of your body and is important to your overall health and well-being ,so you can chew your food; communicate and socialise; and of course, smile :-)
Studies continue to link inflammation in the mouth, especially gum disease, with other inflammatory conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease. Taking good care of your mouth helps to keep your body healthy.
Dental Myth #2: “Baby teeth are not important, they just fall out”
Fact: Baby teeth play a significant role in the health and development of our kids. Baby teeth are important for preserving space in the jaw for the permanent adult teeth and they actually guide them into their correct positions. Establishing healthy dental habits from an early age, including regular dental exams which can start as soon as teeth appear, can set a child up for a lifetime of good oral health.
