Why oral health leads to overall health
from The Huffington Post
You can tell a lot about people by their mouths. Beyond the personality and charisma that shines through a gleaming white smile, important clues to your overall health can be found in the details of your teeth, gums, and even tongue, which is why putting off that next visit to the dentist can be costly not only to your wallet, but also to your heart and other vital organs. Recent studies suggest that two common items may be powerful weapons against heart disease and stroke: a toothbrush and dental floss. Research indicates that those plagued with plaque on their teeth also might have worries about plaque in their arteries.
