It has been a pleasure helping you maintain your oral health and we hope that we have surpassed your expectations, and look forward to caring for your smile for years to come.

    Are You Putting Your Smile Under Pressure?


    Watching a thrilling movie or the championship game can be a 'nail biting' experience. The excitement has us sitting at the edge of our seats, our hearts pounding... and some of us even taking the 'nail biting' aspect literally.

    How does nail biting affect your teeth?

    The primary issue with nail biting is the pressure it puts on your front teeth. These teeth are not built to withstand the same amount of pressure that your molars are. Nail biting can cause the enamel protecting your teeth to fracture as well as wearing down and chipping the edges. Despite being the hardest substance in your body, enamel is by no means invincible.
