When you spend any amount of time thinking about your dental care, you may find that there are some very straightforward details (like how often you should brush and floss). Then, there are those details that can cause you to wonder. For instance, you may wonder why you have to floss, why we have decided you need a dental crown, and more! Rather than allowing our care to remain a mystery to you, we offer some insightful knowledge (and suggest you ask your questions when you see us).
