Dealing with dental issues is not usually on top of anyone’s list of favorite things. Bad past experiences, lack of knowledge and believing in dental myths can keep you from making your smile a priority. The information that I am sharing in this book is designed to help you make an informed decision about some of the forms of treatment to restore your oral health, and discuss ways to care for your teeth. It addresses five critical topics that impact immediate concerns of oral health as well as total body health; oral hygiene, gum diseases, treatment, dental implants, and receding gums.
Dental care is very personal. It is important to ask pertinent questions about recommended treatment and additional options. It is our hope that this book will make you a better patient by helping you become a more informed patient.
A healthy mouth has great value. In fact, preventive care is one of the best investments you can make. You can be sure that treatment now will give greater value and cost less, probably, then treatment in the future.
The first thing most people take notice of is your smile. Having missing teeth or other obvious aesthetic problems could adversely affect one’s social or professional life.
