Good dentists-and smart dental patients-think of the mouth as the first line of defense against disease. This program details the importance of maintaining good dental health, not only for aesthetic reasons, but also to prevent diabetes, cardiovascular inflammation, and other serious health threats. Illustrating the ways that gingivitis and periodontal disease destroy gum and bone tissue, the program shows how these mouth ailments can ultimately weaken systems throughout the body, with dangerous and possibly fatal effects on the pancreas, blood vessels, heart, and even unborn babies. Interviews with respected dentists reinforce critical concepts and treatment options.
