Are You Due For Your Next Teeth Cleaning And Checkup?

What kind of feedback did you receive at your last routine dental exam? Did your dentist find a problem that required restorative dental treatment, or was your smile found to be issue-free?

While you might be well aware of how fatigue is affecting you when it comes to work, or how it affects your mood, you may not realize just how much trouble it can cause for your oral health. People who frequently feel exhausted due to a lack of sleep can feel especially tired at the bookends of their day – in other words, at the times when they tend to brush and floss.
