Abstract: Cavities, gum disease, and “bite” problems are often the only conditions associated with oral health. However, the mouth has significant roles in maintaining health through immune and digestive funtions, and promoting well-being. The mouth is also related to many systemic health disorders. This monograph is designed to give readers an introduction to the connections between the health of the mouth and the health of the body.
