'A Life of Abundance'

'In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.'

Bill Cosby

"3 Steps To Better Oral Health!"

      If your gums hurt or bleed while brushing or flossing, or you are experiencing persistent bad breath are all signs that may indicate problems lurking in your mouth.

      Maintaining good oral hygiene is one of the most important things you can do for your teeth and gums.

      Healthy teeth not only enable boost your self confidence, they make it possible to eat and speak properly.

      Good oral health is important to your overall well-being.

     Daily preventive care, including proper brushing and flossing, will help stop problems before they develop and are much less painful, expensive, and worrisome than treating conditions that have been allowed to progress.

      In between regular visits, some simple steps that should be taken to greatly decrease the risk of developing tooth decay, gum disease and other dental problems are:

     1. Brushing thoroughly twice a day and flossing daily.
     2. Eating a balanced diet and limiting snacks between meals
     3. Rinse with a fluoride mouth rinse.

    Good oral hygiene results in a mouth that looks and smells healthy.

     You know your on the road to good oral health when, your teeth are clean and free of debris, your gums are pink and do not hurt or bleed when you brush or floss and bad breath is not a constant problem.

'Unbelievable Body Facts'

Q. Do you have the same number of bones in your body now as you did when you were a child?

A. No, you actually have less bones! As an adult you have 206 bones, but when you were born your skeleton contained about 350 bones. What happen to all those other bones? Well, as you grew older many bones fused together to form one bone! 


Q. How many blood cells die in the human body every second?

A. About 8 million blood cells! However, the same number of blood cells is born every second!

"What Is Tartar?"

        Tartar, sometimes called calculus, is plaque that has hardened on your teeth.

     Sometimes Tartar can also form at and underneath the gum line and can irritate gum tissues.

     It also gives plaque more surface area on which to grow and a much stickier surface to adhere, which can lead to more serious conditions, such as cavities and gum disease.

     Not only can tartar threaten the health of your teeth and gums, it is also a cosmetic problem.

     Because tartar is more porous, it absorbs stains easily and makes your smile noticeably less attractive.

     So if you are a coffee or tea drinker, or if you smoke, it is especially important to prevent tartar buildup.

     Tartar unlike plaque, which is a colorless film of bacteria, is a mineral buildup that's fairly easy to see if it not under the gum line.

     The most common sign of tartar is a yellow or brown color to teeth or gums.

     A good way to prevent buildup is by brushing and flossing regularly, once tartar has formed, only a visit to the office can remove it.

     The sure fire way to know about, and get rid of the build up is to come in for regular routine cleanings.

     The process for removing tartar is called scaling. During  scaling, we use special instruments to remove tartar from your teeth above and below the gum line.

     Tartar threatens good oral health, once it forms, only a professional cleaning can remove it.
