Healthy Gums For New Moms

By Joey & Luke

Throughout all of life’s stages, maintaining good oral health is important to your overall health. Poor oral health can put anyone at higher risk for heart attack, stroke, diabetes, lung infections, and pre-term low birth weight babies. These diseases are correlated in fact to oral bacteria and inflammation caused by it.
