JAWS & DENTAL CARE
care has extended millions of lives worldwide
by saving billions of teeth
that support the jaws and keep airways open.
Until about 150 years ago, dental infection from decayed
and abscessed teeth, was a main cause of death. This
changed when dentists and dental care became more available
and affordable. Treating tooth decay significantly reduced
dangerous and deadly dental infections.
Save your teeth and save or extend your life! Research
shows how vital the teeth, jaws and airway are to your
health. When choosing dental care, patients and doctors
should keep in mind the main goal, which is to save
teeth, keep jaws supported and keep the airways open.
Going to the dentist can be something you want to do.
Good dental care and good dental function can lead to
a healthier, happier and longer life.
