Alcohol and Oral Health

Now that December has arrived, we are in the throes of planning for the holidays. Along with the added stress the holidays bring, we are also dealing with the effects of the year we have had. For many, the holidays will look very different this year, with cancelled holiday parties and smaller, more intimate gatherings than usual, even just limited to immediate family.

Fillings No One Will Notice

Nobody wants to get a filling, but it’s a very common dental treatment that will restore the health of your tooth and keep it from further damage. During your routine dental check up is when we most often spot a tiny hole forming on the enamel of your tooth. Through the use of X-rays, we can spot these cavities forming between teeth as well. A filling treatment is a fast and easy procedure that will get you back on track to excellent dental health. Talks About COVID-19 And Dentistry
