Dentistry, a branch of medicine related to teeth, gums and all things mouth related. Studies have shown that oral health is just as important as overall health such as gum disease relating to diabetes and heart conditions. Sleep medicine has also shown that your oral health also has a part to play in giving you a good nights sleep! In this space, we discuss the A-Zs of dentistry from what to do with a toothache, how to get that perfect smile and also how to improve your sleep with dentistry!
Join us in discussions relating to dental issues including, but not limited to, bridges, cavities, crowns, orthodontics, and x-rays.
