At Brown & Gettings, DDS, we are passionate about not only your oral health, but your overall health as well. We want to stress to our patients how much your lifestyle and eating habits can truly impact your oral health. Your mouth is known as the gateway to the body, meaning that your mouth leads to the respiratory and digestive tracts. What you consume and your daily habits can lead to not only problems with your oral health, but can lead to long-term problems with your overall health as well. You can make certain lifestyle choices to ensure that you have a healthy body and a healthy mouth. These choices include:
The wonder of technology is an amazing thing to witness, with ever-evolving advances improving our daily lives.
