Last time I checked, the mouth was still part of the human body. If I remember correctly, when people experience mouth problems, they ache just as much (often more) than if they experienced problems elsewhere in their bodies.

Why will my health insurer reimburse the cost of my annual physical but not the price of an annual dental check-up?
The insanity has to stop.
