Dental health is important for overall health. Oral conditions can significantly influence events elsewhere in the body. Poor oral health is a potential risk factor for a number of general diseases such as heart and lung disease, diabetes, pre-mature and low birth-weight babies, and a number of other conditions. If left untreated, unhealthy oral conditions can increase the risk of developing potentially life-threatening diseases which are responsible for the deaths of millions of Americans each year.
