Show Your Teeth and Mouth Some Love!
By the time he became president, George Washington only had one natural tooth left in his mouth. The diaries he kept throughout his life revealed the embarrassment and pain his teeth, and later his dentures, brought him.

Today, things are different, and regular dental exams and cleanings can help you save money and teeth.
