    Your dentist is a disease detective.

    Did you know your mouth holds clues to what's going on in the rest of your body?

    Your dentist searches for clues that may point to other serious health issues. Dentists can detect the signs and symptoms of more than 120 diseases by examining your mouth, head and neck. Plus, more than 90 percent of systemic diseases have oral manifestations. This means that if something is wrong in your mouth, then something else could be wrong with the rest of your body.

    By seeing your dentist, you're not just ensuring a healthy mouth, but a healthy body. Even more reason to see your dentist regularly.
