Waking up with a bright and healthy smile, ready to kiss the day is not just desirable on a cosmetic level, it is actually fundamental to our overall health and wellbeing. Our teeth are, literally, alive. And the health of our oral microbiome has a profound influence on our gut health, our mental health and immune system. And we can take charge of our oral health.
