The oral microbiome is a true balancing act!

You may not know it but your mouth houses thousands of micro-organisms, known as the oral microbiome. The most up to date research is clear! Keeping your oral microbiome in balance is very important and can help you to ward off problems like gum disease, dental decay and nasty bad breath.

It is hard to imagine but there are a huge assortment of good and bad bacteria cohabitating together in all of us. Certain types of unfavorable bacteria when left to run wild in your mouth can actually make you feel awful and affect your smile and your health in major ways.

It is important to have your mouth evaluated by a professional to understand what your specific oral microbiome community is made up of.
