Oral health is an important part of overall health.

Good oral health contributes positively to your physical, mental and social well-being and to the enjoyment of life's possibilities, by allowing you to speak, eat and socialize unhindered by pain, discomfort or embarrassment.

Brushing and flossing, following a healthy diet, and visiting the dentist regularly are all part of ongoing oral care for healthy teeth and gums.
