It's true that a genuine smile has an almost mystical power to transform the hearts and minds of people in a room—and healthy teeth are a big part of that beautiful smile. Teeth also allow us to eat and speak properly, so it’s important to care for them. DO TEETH HAVE WAYS TO PROTECT THEMSELVES? You bet they do!

Unfortunately, fall is also flu season, and infection can mean several days of fever, aches, pains, and overall misery— and in some extreme cases, hospitalization or even death.
