Oral health goes beyond healthy teeth, but also an overall health in the different components of the mouth. Oral health is the specialty that aims to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases that occur in the oral cavity and the maxillomandibular complex. It includes problems related to the teeth, gums, salivary glands, among others.
Even individuals with good oral hygiene habits that avoid harmful behaviours like smoking and eating too many sugary foods shoud visit a dentist once or twice a year for a routine consultation and, possibly, a dental cleaning.
