Why Is Your Jawbone Important?

When you think about your oral health, the two main areas of concern that we speak of regularly are your teeth and gums; however, there is another area in the mouth that can also be cause for concern, and that is the jawbone. Although we typically give the jawbone very little thought, it holds your entire mouth together. The jawbone creates the guide for your face shape and holds all of your teeth in place.

Is A Cracked Tooth A Big Deal?

What To Know About Dry Mouth

Do you wake up in the morning and your mouth feels like it is sticky and dry? If so, you are experiencing dry mouth. This is a common condition that results in a lack of saliva in the mouth. It can become a problem because saliva is needed to help rinse away lingering food and bacteria. When bacteria linger on and between the teeth as well as along the gumline, it will lead to problems, such as gum disease and tooth decay.
