Pearly Whites: The Importance of Dental Care

We all know how important it is to take care of our teeth. We learn from a very young age to brush and floss, as well as visit the dentist regularly. Often when we think of dental hygiene, things like preventing cavities, tooth decay and gum disease come to mind. But have you ever considered that taking care of your teeth contributes to overall health? We know that it's important to eat right and exercise to stay healthy, but it is just as important to look after your teeth as well.
