Why is oral hygiene so important?

Your oral health offers clues about your overall health — problems in your mouth can affect the rest of your body. Your mouth is the entry point to your digestive and respiratory tracts, and some of these bacteria can cause disease. At NYC Smiles, we focus on comprehensive care each time you are in the office.
