Good health begins in mouth.
Infected teeth/gums in your mouth is a MAJOR health hazard.
The mouth is the Gateway to health; heard many times but now there is growing scientific evidence.
The oral cavity is a portal of entry as well as the site of disease for microbial infections that affect general health status. Surgeon General based on scientific findings commented "The mouth can become a source of disease or pathological processes affecting other parts of the body". You worry a lot about a small ulcer on your body but you ignore gum disease which is equal to many ulcers in terms of causing damage. Several of chronic conditions can benefit from improvement of oral health.
The take home message is "Take care of your mouth and you will be Healthy."
