More Than Just a Smile

There is much more to oral health than simply having a nice smile. Left untreated, oral diseases and conditions can adversely impact the overall quality of one's health. In fact, periodontal (gum) disease has been linked with stroke, heart disease, and pre-term and low-birth-weight infants. There is also research to show that infections inside the mouth can affect major organs of the body. In addition, poor oral health can alter the digestive process, leading to intestinal problems. Moreover, because more than 90 percent of systemic diseases show signs in the mouth, the dentist should look at a dental examination as more than a "tooth checkup."

According to recent research, laughter stimulates strong brain activity in listeners. Simply put, laughter and smiles are contagious!

People are self conscious about the condition of their smile and deprive themselves from this important asset. If you are concerned about the whiteness of your smile, professional teeth whitening by the dentist provides the safest and most effective way to brighten your smile!
