Your oral hygiene is essential to your overall health. In fact, over 90% of systemic diseases such as diabetes, kidney disease, and pancreatic cancer have oral manifestations.
By examining your teeth and gums, your dentist may be able to detect nutritional problems, susceptibility to disease, signs of stress, even problems with your heart or other major organs.
