You may have heard of the “mouth body connection,” but many patients think that only refers to how poor oral health impedes the ability to consume nutritious foods. Actually, there’s much more to it.

Oral hygiene is essential no matter what, but if you’re at an increased risk for pancreatic cancer, it may be even more important. In this post, we’ll discuss current research that has linked poor oral hygiene with increased risk for pancreatic cancer.

Patients with missing teeth often forego the tooth replacement process out of fear that they will receive an unnatural looking replacement, dentures that slip and slide, or experience additional pain or discomfort. Dental implants offer many patients a safe, effective tooth replacement option that leaves them with flawless, natural looking smiles. In the past two decades, innovations in the dental implant supported tooth replacement process have made it possible for more patients than ever before to be considered good candidates for this restorative treatment. Still, there is no such thing as a one size fits all solution when it comes to dental care. Before you begin the dental implant supported tooth replacement process, we encourage you to consider some of the reasons patients may choose a different tooth replacement solution.

In recent years, more patients than ever before have visited their dentists seeking orthodontic treatment as adults. While many of these patients want to straighten their teeth, they don’t necessarily want to spend months or even years sharing a smile marred by metal brackets and wires. Instead, your general dentist or orthodontist can provide a comfortable, clear alternative – Invisalign. This clear alignment tray orthodontic system allows patients to achieve their perfectly aligned smiles without having to worry about the impact on their personal or professional images.
