September is National Gum Care Month! More than 75% of all adult Americans have some form of periodontal (gum) disease, a destructive infection that attacks and destroys the gum tissue, supporting connective fibers attaching gums to teeth, and underlying bone supporting the teeth.
There are only a few hygiene openings left for the month of August, so if you or your child are overdue for your dental cleanings, please give us a call so we can schedule you before heading back to school. Don’t forget, in order for us to fill out your child’s dental forms they must be up to date with their cleanings!
June is Oral Health Month! This month is to educate individuals about the importance of good oral hygiene practices, preventive care, and regular dental check-ups. Maintaining a general level of oral health is a fairly simple task, yet many lack these day-to-day routines.
Based on a new study, poor oral health may cause rheumatoid arthritis. Researchers from the University of Louisville determined that poor oral health can raise the risk of rheumatoid arthritis based on the presence of an enzyme that is around when a person has gum disease.
Oral and oropharyngeal cancer (cancer of the mouth and upper throat) collectively kill nearly one person every hour of every day of the year. Of the people newly diagnosed with these cancers, 40 percent will not survive longer than 5 years. The death rate associated with oral and oropharyngeal cancers remains particularly high because the cancers routinely are discovered late in their development.
In addition to good nutrition provided by healthy foods that help teeth grow and stay healthy, fruits and vegetables promote the production of saliva. More saliva means the mouth is naturally washed out more often, preventing bacterial growth. Other foods and drinks that help keep your teeth happy include water, dairy, lean proteins, and nuts.
National Children’s Dental Health Month is an observance that brings together thousands of dedicated dental professionals, healthcare providers, and educators to promote the benefits of good oral health to children, their caregivers, teachers and many others.
We would like to wish all of our patients a very happy, healthy, and safe holiday season. May this holiday season sparkle with moments of laughter, love, and goodwill. May your next year be complete with joy and contentment. And thank you for letting us take care of your beautiful smiles!

Veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) to fit over the front surface of your teeth . They are used to improve the appearance of teeth that are stained, chipped, discolored or slightly misaligned. Porcelain veneers can also close small gaps between teeth.

🌷April is Oral 👄 Cancer Awareness Month! Every hour, 🕑 24-hours-a-day, 365-days-a-year, someone dies of oral or oropharyngeal cancer (cancer of the mouth and upper throat). Yet, if oral cancer is detected and treated early ✅, treatment-related health problems are reduced and survival rates may increase 👍. Once a year, at your routine dental appointment ✅, your hygienist will perform an oral cancer screening 🔎. So, be sure to stay up to date with your hygiene 🗓 appointments, and remember, when these cancers are detected and treated early, mortality and treatment related health problems are reduced❣
