15 Feb How To Care For the Teeth That You Want To Keep
WHY IS IT THAT PREVENTIVE DENTAL CARE AND MAINTENANCE on your teeth and gums is so important? First off, devoting small amounts of attention to your teeth and gums will help you keep your smile for life. We want you to be proud of what the rest of the world sees when they look at you, but it isn’t just about the way you look—it’s also about your health and the way you feel.
Proper brushing and flossing each day dramatically reduces your risk of gum disease, but obviously some things just can’t be helped. If you lose part of your filling biting into a bagel it’s comforting to know that Dr. Michel will be there to help.

Since so many studies have linked your oral health to your overall health, visiting Dr. Michel is as important as visiting your family doctor.
