A pretty smile is something to be proud of . Have you ever noticed how good it feels to smile at the world with confidence? If you walk down the street and greet everyone you meet with a full smile, chances are good that they will smile right back at you and you will feel great!
But a pretty smile is more than cosmetics. It can be a barometer of good health. If you are living with a neglected mouth, it can be causing more damage than you realize. Bacteria and plaque from periodontal disease can be causing damage to your cardiovascular system, making you susceptible to stroke or heart attack. Worn down teeth can cause changes in your bite that may lead to headaches and jaw pain. A broken down smile can be an indicator of much more serious health problems that can affect your sleep, leaving you feeling unrefreshed and miserable in the morning. The mouth is truly a gauge to your overall health.
