Your oral health directly impacts your overall health. Chronic oral infections can lead to serious health conditions, such as cardiac disease and respiratory infections. That's why it's important to maintain good oral hygiene and consult with a specialist at the first sign of trouble. Portsmouth Regional Hospital is here to help, with surgeons who are experts in the diagnosis, treatment and management of diseases, injuries and defects of the mouth, teeth, jaws and face.
