Teeth can save lives

We often depict cavemen with crooked decayed teeth. There is nothing further from the truth. Our cave dwelling ancestors had very little trouble with tooth decay and they all sported a full set of 32 well aligned teeth.
Today 92% of the world population has signs of tooth decay and 50 to 70% need braces to straighten their teeth.
Our mouth is the dashboard of our body and teeth are flashing warning lights about our habits, habits that also affect the rest of our body.
