Have you ever wondered why you can go to one dental office and get a quote for $1000 for a crown, then go across the street and get another quote for $600?? THIS IS WHY! More and more dental offices are using labs in China, instead of local, American labs to get their crowns, implants, etc. If the price difference is that large, you should know that it IS NOT someone simply over charging you. There is a reason behind the higher price…AND you should ask why! “Why the price difference?” We would be glad to tell you why we charge a larger fee…We use local labs that guarantee their work to be 100% made in the USA and NOT contaminated. As explained in the article, the shape and color (THE QUALITY) of the returned product from China is generally not satisfactory… You get what you pay for.
Have you tried this latest fad??
Nowadays millennials can spew out health and beauty fads more fluently than “Anchorman” quotes. In between the daily struggles of #selfies, compulsively checking Instagram, and stalking your latest crush on Facebook, health and beauty has become less of a focus on health, and more of a focus on a David Copperfield illusion of wellness.
Let’s face it: it’s far more motivating to think modern technology has miraculous weight loss tips or genetically engineered food with negative calories. But here we are, in 2014, with the facts. If you want to lose weight, you have to diet and exercise.
What about oral hygiene? Brush and floss? Ha! It’s no secret that for most of us the last time that white thread was in-between our teeth was when the hygienist did the honors 6 months ago… right?
“Oil Pulling” seems much more effective [enter heavy dose of sarcasm…

The Data & Analysis Center reviewed more than 77 million Delta Dental claims and found that–over a lifetime–a single cavity can have serious economic consequences down the road. We can help you prevent tooth decay and save you a bundle!
With new advances in Dental Technology and Treatment, we can stop tooth decay from progressing and beautifully restore damaged teeth. Once restored, proper home care will help your restorations last; however, there is no such thing as a “permanent dental restoration.” That’s why we are so passionate about having you and your family come in for routine dental exams to help prevent tooth decay. That means not waiting until your in pain to call us!
A new study shows that since all restorations are “temporary” the lifetime cost of treating just one molar that started with a small filling–on average–is about $2,187. Multiply that by several teeth and you’ll come up with lots of reasons you’d rather enjoy spending your hard earned money on other things! Let’s face it, by comparison–an exam cost next to nothing. And this is where real prevention comes in. We now know that when good oral hygiene is coupled with regular dental visits and cleanings–cavities are almost entirely preventable. Yet, 90 percent of all adults have had one or more cavities. And nearly 80 percent of young people have had a cavity by the age of 17. When caught early, we can restore the form and function of your decayed teeth before more serious damage occurs. DON’T WAIT TO CALL!
If you really want to keep your pocketbook and your pearl whites happy…PREVENTATIVE dentistry is the way to go!
It seems like from sun up to sundown, you face a never ending “TO DO” list.
So when another day starts with a slight bleeding of your gums as you brush or floss, don’t let this get lost in the shuffle of your busy day!
If any other part of your body started bleeding when you cleaned it, you wouldn’t think it was normal and ignore it!
The TRUTH is, it’s never normal for your gums to bleed easily or to become red and swollen. It’s called GINGIVITIS–the mildest form of gum disease.
There are usually no warning signs in its early stages. You could have gum disease and not know it!!
THE GOOD NEWS!!!!! Gingivitis is 100% REVERSIBLE!
With professional treatment and good oral home care, gingivitis is 100% reversible. That’s because gingivitis only affects the tissue above your gum line. The bad news is, left untreated, it can progress to periodontitis; advanced gum disease. Periodontitis causes infection and destruction of the tissue and bone below your gum line. As the infection spreads, periodontitis can result in significant bone loss, tooth loss, and systemic health issues, such as increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
Advanced periodontitis is not reversible and often will require oral surgery.
SO STOP WAITING!! CALL NOW! 870-277-0412
Did you know that women who have periodontal disease may be seven times more likely to have a baby who is premature or of low birth weight? The rise in your hormones during pregnancy can cause gingivitis and even tumors on your gums.
