Cavities without Pain?

2019-12-08T23:49:00+00:00

If It Ain't Broke, Why Fix It? Patients are sometimes surprised when they have a cavity or two and wonder, "How can I need a filling when I haven't been in any pain?"

2019-12-08T23:38:18+00:00

Less is More Where would we be without our vitamin C? Everyone agrees it's a crucial nutrient that provides many health benefits.

Against Tooth Damage Let's face it; kids, sports, and the typical teenage sense of invulnerability make a pretty risky combination.
