Importance of Dental Hygiene

Oral health affects your overall health. As such, the importance of dental hygiene cannot be overstated. Like other parts of your body, your mouth is filled with bacteria. Although most of the bacteria are harmless, it can accumulate and create problems throughout your body. Other forms of bacteria can lead to disease.

Your body naturally fights off harmful bacteria.

Studies Show a Great Smile is a Gateway to Improved Self-Confidence


Self-Confidence in St Petersburg


Social media has exploded on the scene, with pictures of selfies and outings with friends being blasted on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat, and there seems to be little chance to escape the public eye. This can be very disheartening to those who have a negative self-image. For many, the relentless pursuit for self-improvement is a daily struggle. 33% of patients polled in 2013 by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery decided that change meant plastic surgery. However, it turns out that they may have been addressing the wrong problem. That same year, USA Today found that 58% of men and 71% of women said … Read the rest
