You’ve probably heard that the eyes are the window into the soul, but have you ever considered that the mouth is the window into the body?
Truth be told, this incredible insight actually is the reason why dentists are sometimes the first to know that a patient has a disease. Long before symptoms show up in other parts of the body, the mouth shows it all… And your dentist may have just saved your life! Dental health truly can be a key to greater overall health.
If that’s news to you, then it’s time for you to read about these 5 things that your dentist could recognize just from looking at your mouth…
As you can see, your dentist is in the first line of combat when it comes to protecting you from a variety of health problems! Besides checking on plaque and cavities, he/she is tuned in to what your mouth could be saying about the rest of your body. If it’s been awhile since you’ve been to the dentist, take this opportunity to get a checkup! No one ever regrets the decision to ensure that their teeth (and the rest of their body) are in optimal health.
