Importance of Oral Health


It is said the eyes are the window to the soul, but did you know your oral health is the window to your overall health? 

At Howard County Family Dentistry we want you to know that the condition of your oral health plays a very important role in your overall health. According to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), more than 90 percent of all systemic (overall) diseases have oral health symptoms. Research shows that poor oral health can be a sign of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, premature births, and osteoporosis. Please allow us a moment of your time to educate you on the connection between your oral health and your overall health. Once you understand, you'll see that a healthy mouth is connected to a healthier you.

The Importance of Regular Oral Healthcare

Your teeth and gums hold important clues to other health issues. So, if you're interested in maintaining good overall health, as well as your smile, visit us for a checkup and cleaning at least twice a year and, depending on your personal situation, we may recommend 3 or 4 visits per year. An exam allows us not only to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums, but to be on the lookout for developments that may lead to future health problems, including oral cancer.
