The first thing people see is your smile. The worst thing they notice is bad breath or inflammation. Keeping your mouth healthy with antioxidants may be the best thing you can do for your image. Antioxidants are a natural component of saliva. Salivary antioxidants are extremely important in regulating oral health. Salivary Antioxidants defend against free radicals. Free radicals are a term often used to describe damaged cells that can be problematic. When free radicals are on the attack, they don’t just kill cells to acquire their missing molecule. “If free radicals simply killed a cell, it wouldn’t be so bad… the body could just regenerate another one. The problem is, free radicals often injure the cell, damaging the DNA, which creates the seed for disease.”  An accumulation of free radicals can lead to a condition called oxidative stress. Oxidative Stress is a key component in inflammation and inflammation has been cited as a major risk factor in many oral systemic conditions.

Listen to what our patients have to say!

Today I had a 2 1/2 hour appointment with Dr. Pete Richards to repair a crown which had come off. In the process he cleaned off the remainder of the old tooth, performed a root canal, built up the old tooth and created a new crown, which was put in place. He along with his staff was highly professional, friendly and did an outstanding job. Frank Sacho, 1/21/2015
