Have you considered how much your teeth matter?

Not only do our teeth help us eat, but they also are important to help us chew to begin that first stage of the digestion process. Our teeth also allow us to look better, speak clearer and gain self-confidence by smiling!

The mouth, it turns out, can indicate a lot about the overall health of a person. Here are a few areas that are important for you to consider when reviewing the current stage of your teeth!

Common oral issues:




Oral Cancer

Some problems caused by bad teeth:

Cardiovascular disease


Prostate issues

Respiratory problems

Tips to help with good oral hygiene:

Eat well

Floss daily

Brush 2x a day

Consider an electric toothbrush and water flosser

See a dentist


Easier said than done, I understand. My challenge to you this week is to be a little more aware of the condition of your teeth and perhaps what your mouth may be communicating about your overall health.

Are you looking for a provider in town? Send me an email if you have dental insurance with DIG. I was recently provided with an up-to-date list of dentists in our area that also work with our insurance! I would love to share this information with you!
