     There is a direct relationship between oral health and quality of life. Oral health affects, speech, eating, self-esteem, and emotional states. Diet, nutrition, sleep and work all are affected by oral health status.*

    Poor oral health affects the digestive process, which begins with physical and chemical activities in the mouth.  Problems here ca lead to intestinal failure, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other problems.~
