A Smile and Your Health


Great dental health and a great smile have a direct impact on your overall health.  Dental diseases tend to be chronic (long term) and highly related to toxic bacteria.  There are a number of toxic compounds produced by the disease process, which further exacerbate and expand the infections.  Even with mild gingivitis (gum Infection) the actual surface area of the tissues involved may be the size of your hand.  Due to the very vascular (lots of blood vessels) nature of the oral tissues these harmful bacteria, toxins, and chemicals enter the blood stream and are carried all over the body.  There are strong correlations between even mild dental infections with heart disease, stroke and diabetes.  Some researchers are suggesting that upwards of 40% of all organ diseases have a dental origin or relationship.  Getting even one cleaning a year with regular effective home care can reduce your risks for a number of serious diseases.




A smile costs nothing, but gives so much.

It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give.

It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.


None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it, and none

is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it.

A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business, and

is the countersign of friendship.


It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,

and it is nature’s best antidote for trouble.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something

that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.


Some people are too tired to give you a smile.

Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has

no more to give.



It really is easy and cheap to do… take care of your smile and dentition

so they can take care of you.
