Most of us think that we’re fastidious in adhering to a correct dental routine. After all, all that’s needed is to brush our teeth twice a day and replace our toothbrush often enough, right? While most of us were shown the correct ways to clean our teeth in the past, it’s easy to forget it or have it fall to the wayside as time goes by. The truth is that there’s a bit more to brushing and flossing than you probably remember, which is why it’s always good to brush up on your knowledge. Here are the three most common things people tend to forget.

Today my blog will be about what you eat and how what you eat affects your dental health.
It is very interesting that it is not What you eat but rather How Often you eat, that affects the dental health and dental oral hygiene of your teeth.

Has anyone ever told you that you have bad breath? There are over 80 million people world wide who suffer symptoms of bad breath, also known as halitosis. The most frequent cause of bad breath is from bacteria in the mouth, the decay of food particles and other symptoms of lower levels of dental hygiene. The formation of bacteria in the mouth and the decay of food produce a sulfur that leads to the bad breath.
Why do I have a passion for Dental Implants?
It is because I want the optimum health for my patients and Dental Implants give my patients quality of life. Cosmetically they look terrific and a healthy looking smile and medically my patients will have a replacement tooth or teeth that is even more secure than their original tooth.
Orthodontics are becoming more and more popular amongst my adult patients.
I would like my first blog to be about orthodontics because my first patient today is still celebrating having her braces off. I remember meeting her 3 years ago as a young shy lady of 20 years who lacked self-confidence. We have watched her evolve into a lovely young woman who feels – in her words – sexy and confident – and just loves smiling. She tells us she has sore cheeks because she has been smiling all week.
