Stroke Awareness Month and LANAP®

Recent studies have shown a strong link between healthy gums and a healthy heart. In fact, you may be surprised to know that the build-up of plaque and bacteria on the teeth can be a good predictor of whether or not a person has heart disease.

Immediately after the image is captured, it’s displayed on the computer screen for Dr. Stypula to review. The Benefits There are many benefits to using digital x-rays in our dental office. These incl ...
