A Smile is Important
A brilliant, beautiful smile is a valuable, long-term asset. It is usually one of the very first things a person will notice about you. And, it speaks volumes about who you are.
Fortunately, it is possible for absolutely everyone to obtain that beautiful smile of their dreams. For some, it may only require minimal effort, while for others it may be a more involved process requiring several phases of treatment. Nevertheless, the smile you’ve dreamed of can be yours.
Perhaps even more important than the confidence gained by flashing a picturesque smile, is the indisputable fact that there is a direct link between your oral health (teeth and gums) and your overall health. When bacteria that normally live in your mouth get out of control, they can invade your body systems and contribute to health problems such as coronary artery disease (heart problems), stroke and even diabetes.
Therefore, while you may not be ready for a smile make-over, it is important to optimize the health of your teeth and gums so that they don’t jeopardize the health of other body systems.
