The mouth is a small aspect when it is compared to the rest of your body, yet it remains one of the most, if not the most, important parts of our body. Many doctors, physicians, and dentists believe that the mouth is connected to the rest of our body. Scientific articles have even shown direct links between our oral health and its relation to overall health.
