Most of us, at some point in our lives, are going to need a crown. Crowns are tooth shaped caps that are put on teeth sometimes after a root canal, after several cavities on the same too, or after infection or injury. Crowns can help preserve a tooth that is weakened or compromised. A crown is a much better option than having a tooth pulled...

Teeth go bad for many reasons. Perhaps you or someone you know didn’t brush and floss as a child and now, as an adult is facing getting crowns and even pulled teeth. Perhaps genetics haven’t been on your side. Maybe you’ve brushed and flossed everyday but as the years pass, you have more and more problems with large fillings and crowns. Or perhaps, because of...

It’s definitely the most sugary time of year, whether you are in Salt Lake City, Utah, or anywhere. Hot chocolate, chocolate fudge, and chocolate cookies easily come to mind.

It is mid-December in Holladay, Utah, and the holidays are in full swing. It seems like no matter how “low key” you try to make December, there are too many things that pile up on the calendar.

As important as taking care of your teeth is, how you considered why smiling is needed and even important? Smiling can actually affect your overall health and can even extend your lifespan. Whether...

Technology is changing our world. It’s interesting to think that the Internet has only existed for about 25 years. None of us today can imagine having to wait more than a few seconds for an answer to a question. None of us can imagine not being constantly connected. But only 25 years ago, the technology to email and to search the internet was only just...

  If you’re avoiding the dentist, now is the time to go! When you think of doing something fun, going to the dentist probably isn’t on your top-ten list. For many people, it’s not enjoyable being poked and prodded. In addition, it’s never comfortable having to be accountable for all those times you ate sticky treats, skipped brushing, and were too tired to floss. We all know...

"Tips for Staying Healthy During The Holidays | Holladay UT" It’s November and Halloween is over. Most kids around the Salt Lake City area have a big bag of candy in their homes, waiting to be eaten. Most stores already have...

Every time you go to the dentist, you probably hear the same thing: “Make sure you brush your teeth twice a day.” Brushing is essential to preserving your teeth and fighting off gum diseases like gingivitis. Since brushing is so important, toothpaste must be important, too. We are lucky today to have so many flavors and choices. In the past before toothpaste was invented people were...
