You’ve heard the advice: If you want to live longer, eat healthy foods and exercise daily. But there’s a third piece of the puzzle, and it can add 10 to 15 years to your life.

It’s been right under your nose this whole time—literally.

Your mouth is the gateway to your body and is the most critical organ for improving your health, from childhood onward. Everything in the human life cycle is related to the mouth: fertility, childbirth, sleeping soundly, success in school, finding a mate, getting a job, psychological well-being, avoiding chronic or systemic disease, and aging well. Your mouth is a window into the health of your body as a whole; from its microbiome to its structure, it impacts your physical and mental wellness in countless ways.  
 
Unfortunately, the mouth-body connection has been largely neglected by American medicine . . . until now. 
 
If Your Mouth Could Talk is the result of over 20 years of firsthand experience and research by renowned orthodontist and dentofacial orthopedist, Dr. Kami Hoss. In this groundbreaking work, Dr. Hoss connects the dots between oral health and whole-body health, offering a roadmap to a longer, more successful future for you and your family. 
 
This isn’t a book about brushing and flossing—or any of the other standard advice you get from your dentist. Instead, you’ll hear about how to protect your mouth’s microbiome, the effect of diet, the relationship between oral structure and sleep problems, how to breathe better, and more. This is an in-depth guide for people who want to take control of their health to the fullest extent possible—who want to understand how their mouth contributes to their overall health and quality of life, and what they can do to better care for it.
 
If your mouth could talk, it would tell you about the condition of your entire life. Time to start listening.

A 180 degree change in my oral health

I was experiencing some issues with my oral health. It never crossed my mind that the standard advice given by dentists was the one causing me the problems. After reading this book and soaking in the new knowledge about the latest scientific advancements, I started implementing the changes recommended by Dr. Hoss. As a result, all issues have been resolved, and even the dental hygienist noted the changes and was surprised at my oral health and cleanliness last time. I Totally recommend this book!
