Good oral health starts with a sound prevention program in the office.

Researchers from the University of Gothenburg's Sahlgrenska Academy and Region Vastra Gotaland had previously identified that sparse bone structure in the trabecular bone in the lower jaw was linked to greater chance of previously having fractures elsewhere. However, the team now found that a dental X-ray can be used to successfully predict who will be at higher risk of fractures in the future. More

It is not a mystery that the majority of our patients are seeking whiter teeth.
