Dental health and your teeth
You eat with them. You speak with them. You smile with them. In fact, you spend most of your life with them. What are they? Your teeth.
As long as they don't cause you pain or problems, you probably don't spend much time thinking about your teeth. They are, however, a very important member of your body and deserve your care and attention.
Good dental health starts early in your life with good habits for dental hygiene and regular visits at the dentist. Dental health, though, has nothing to do with how many fillings you have or how many (or few) teeth you have left. Dental health is about the condition of your teeth and gums right here and now. Even a mouth with only very few teeth can be healthy, if good dental hygiene is maintained. At the same time a mouth full of pearly-white teeth can be diseased and unhealthy if for some reason the oral hygiene is suffering.
This website has been established to help you achieve and/or maintain good dental health. If you treat your teeth well, they will be your loyal partners for life.
