What's the connection between oral and overall health?

Oral health is a vital part of overall health. When our mouths, gums or teeth aren't healthy, our bodies may be more susceptible to other serious conditions.

Although largely preventible, tooth decay and gum disease are among the most common chronic diseases in the United States. 

Studies show oral health conditions like gum disease are linked with many health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, rheumetoid arthritis, and pregnancy complications.

That's why supporting your employees' oral health can make a difference in their health, wellbeing, and productivity and save your company money in healthcare costs.
