Description
Maintaining good oral health is essential for good health. The ability to speak, smile, smell, taste, touch, chew, swallow, and make facial expressions depends on good oral health. Since the mouth is the entry point for your digestive and respiratory tracts, bacteria can easily enter the body and cause disease. In this session, you will learn about the benefits of good oral health and how poor oral health can lead to diseases.
