• When applicable, smoking cessation and dietary counseling can provide you with support to modify your risk factors & behaviors.
• Replace failing dentistry, before it becomes urgent, to avoid the pain, inconvenience and added expense unplanned dentistry can involve.
• Reveal all risk factors to your dental health professional so they may best assist you.
