It's common knowledge that health care is one of the largest expenditures of the United States economy. Whether you're healthy or not, it's an expensive price tag on treatment and preventative care. Thinking creatively to slash this health care price, the Dental Trade Alliance recently published a study showcasing an unexpected strategy in which oral health can save billions in health care.

Oral Health is linked to our overall health in many different ways. Oral infections can spread throughout the body, and diabetes is proven to worsen with the presence of gum disease. Poor oral health even stirs complications in pregnancy and lung disease.

To spread the word about this Study, the Dental Trade Alliance launched the Oral Healthcare Can't Wait campaign. Within this detailed campaign, the Dental Trade Alliance breaks down the statistics and presents a persuading approach to better individual health and health care. Because of the importance of oral health to overall health, DTA has built a conclusion that if every American had a dental appointment every year, the overall health of the nation would improve resulting in lower expenses for health care.

    Oral health is responsible for your good or bad overall health. Oral infection can lead more disease like tooth decay, gingivitis, periodontal disease, affected bone and supporting tissue, or even a pain in jaw. Hence be careful and try to improve good oral habits to get better oral health including overall health.
