Oral diseases

Oral diseases ranging from cavities to cancer are all serious threats to your oral health. Your oral health is an important part of your overall health. Research shows there may be a link between oral disease and other health problems such as diabetes, heart disease and stroke as well as pre-term and low-birth-weight babies. If left unchecked, hidden threats to your oral health — such as gum disease, root cavities and infections and oral cancer — can lead to severe pain, loss of teeth and serious health implications.
