Clinician’s Corner: Head and Neck Cancer Awareness and Prevention
Dr. Eileen Crespo provides a review on head and neck cancer awareness and prevention, and provides important reminders about the impacts the disease has on oral health.
Floss vs. Toothpicks
When you feel something stuck in your teeth, your instinct might be to reach for a toothpick. However, they don't offer the same benefits of dental floss and can even cause harm when used too often or incorrectly.
Soothing sore gums
Gum pain can be a serious distraction. If you notice anything unusual happening to your gums, contact your dentist to set up an appointment right away. They will be able to detect the underlying cause and offer you the best treatment solutions.
Healthy gums lead to happy smiles
To keep your mouth healthy, be sure you are taking good care of your gums. September is National Gum Care Month, so it's the perfect time to get into a good oral health routine.
