Your dentist can discuss your treatment plans, as dentures are not your only option!
Intervention by your dentist and our Periodontal specialist (Dr. David Samuels) may be able to maintain your smile.
For a specialist opinion on your gum health, ask you dentist for a referral or call our office.
Our amazing Smiles Inc Teams participated in the Bermuda Triple Challenge on March 17th. Dr. Betts, Dr. Lightbourne, Dr. Samuels and Katya were pushed to the limits and finished with a smile! Look out for our Smiles Inc relay team on Bermuda Day!

Are You Doing A Detox This New Year?
Each time you take a sip of lemon water, your mouth becomes acidic for at least 20 minutes. Frequent acidity can lead to erosion of the enamel, exposure of the dentin (sensitive teeth), and decay. The enamel that is lost is never restored.
Did You Know?
* Hot lemon water causes more tooth decay!
* Sipping lemon water or tea all day increases tooth decay!
*Sipping lemon and honey drinks is disastrous for your teeth!
What can you do if you want the health benefits and want to minimize the negative effects?
* Drink your lemon water at one time, do not sip on it all day.
* Rinse with water immediately after drinking lemon water.
*Go for regular dental hygiene visits and dental exams.
