Forgive the bad pun, but this is the spot for learning all about oral health and how it’s essential for your overall wellness! We like filling our dental family in on everything they need to know, but adding some fun trivia in, too. For example, did you know the average person will spend 852 hours brushing their teeth in just one month? We joke! If you’re a math whiz, you called our bluff immediately, but that amount of time is cumulative over the average person’s lifespan, and we think that’s amazing.
Our blog is where we’ll post articles twice a month that can inform you of certain dental procedures, including orthodontics and prosthodontics (crowns, bridges, dentures, and implants), how to fight and prevent dangerous gum disease, and answer questions like: “Can I recycle my toothbrush?” We hope you’ll read along, share, and join the conversation!
If you have any questions about our blog, our practice, or you’re ready to schedule a visit with your Dickinson and League City dentist, Dr. Agee Kunjumon of Touchstone Dentistry, we’d love to hear from you!
