Could Genetics Make Your Teeth More Prone to Cavities?

Nothing can make you feel insecure about your oral hygiene habits like talking to someone who’s never had a cavity!

More Than Half of Older Americans Skip Dental Checkups

It’s easy to make excuses for skipping a dental checkup if you aren’t experiencing any problems. But regular checkups are important to stay on top of oral health.
