Oral health is essential to overall health and quality of life. According to the U.S. Office of the Surgeon General, the most common chronic illnesses are tooth decay, gingivitis (bleeding gums), periodontitis (bone loss around teeth), and oral malodor (bad breath). Poor oral health is also linked to chronic illnesses such as diabetes, cardiovascular problems, and skeletal bone health (Surgeon General's Oral Health Report, 2000).
