Keeping a Healthy Smile
Do your body a favour. Go to the dentist. Research shows there may be a link between oral disease and other health problems such as diabetes, respiratory disease, heart disease, and stroke, as well as premature and low-birth-weight babies. Although scientists are only just beginning to understand this link, dentists are encouraging people to make oral health care a regular part of a healthy lifestyle. If you are a parent of infants or small children, you are encouraged to start teaching your children about good oral health as early as possible, and have them assessed by a dentist within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age.
