Healthy teeth and a healthy smile are important to your overall well-being and self-esteem. Good dental health can even prevent serious medical conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. That’s why it’s important to take care of your teeth by brushing and flossing daily, visiting your dentist regularly and having your teeth and gums cleaned on a regular basis.
