Education may very well be the most important part of our role as your oral health advocates. Offering a wide variety of services is something we’re proud to do, but without knowing how to care for your smile, even high-quality dental work can fail.
Unfortunately, the risk doesn’t stop there. When your mouth is unhealthy, the rest of your body is likely to follow suit. The oral-systemic link (the understanding that your mouth can reflect the rest of your body’s health and vice versa) was discovered decades ago, and research continues to stress the importance of oral infection prevention as a way to prevent systemic infection. Our blog is where we share information on effective prevention methods, ways to recover from oral infections and restore your smile, and many other topics!
- We post articles on our blog at least twice a month.
- Our blog posts discuss everything from home remedies for toothaches to whether activated charcoal products really work to whiten your teeth.
- We'd love for you to share the knowledge and join the conversation!
