Our great team is committed to providing you with the finest oral health care options and services available. We want to turn your ordinary dental profile into a mouth masterpiece that will have you grinning from ear-to-ear. Always take heed of anything in your daily lives that seek to disrupt your oral health care.

Protect your smile with adequate safety measures. Here are a few oral health risks you should always be aware of:

– Bruxism, which is a condition where you involuntarily grind your teeth, can slowly wear down your teeth over time. Celeste M. Eckerman DDS LLC can offer treatment plans for bruxism.
– Tongue piercings may seem fashionable and cool for many but a single wrong move could spell catastrophe for your lips, teeth, and gums. Metal fragments can break loose and become choking risks or chip and crack your teeth.
– Biting on your nails could potentially chip or crack your teeth, not to mention the extra risk of all sorts of bad bacteria and germs being introduced to your mouth.
– If you play any sports or practice any extreme stunts, always make sure to wear a safety gear. A single strike to the head can easily knock out multiple teeth or fracture your jaw.
– Never attempt to open products with your teeth. This is an easy way to give yourself an oral injury and destroy your teeth.
