When you think about your mouth, it is important to think about it as a whole structure. Many people often think only of their teeth when they go to the dentist, but that is not all we do. At Green Dentistry, we take a holistic approach and consider your entire mouth as well as your whole body. One of the most important aspects of your oral health is your gums. They are the foundation of your mouth. When you think of a highrise building, it would collapse if it didn’t have a strong foundation. Your mouth is exactly the same. If your gums are not strong, your teeth will have no support and will collapse.
