You brush your teeth, floss daily and visit the dentist at least twice a year. As far as you’re concerned, your oral health is under control. But there’s more to oral health than protecting those pearly whites, and your habits may put you at risk for tooth decay, gingivitis and other more serious diseases.
Now is your chance to learn more, take control and save with MySmileGuide.
