Your entire body is linked together in a very complex way. Any problems that one area of the body experiences can be felt in an entirely different place. Don’t believe us? Think about how you feel the next time the flu hits. It isn’t just your stomach that hurts, it’s the combination of headaches and body aches that brings you to your knees. It’s all a perfect example of how much your body relies on its other parts to survive.
Let’s switch gears and discuss why oral health is so important. Disease and other infections can plague your mouth. They can damage your smile so much that teeth may end up going missing or will need to be extracted in order to save your entire oral health. Infections don’t mess around and can become fatal if not properly treated. At Michel Dental in Silver Lake, KS, we always want patients to know how important it is to keep their oral health in optimal shape. It isn’t just a toothache you have to worry about because it could be much, much worse. Let Dr. Michael Michel be the Silver Lake dentist you can trust.

In about three days from now, the wait will be over—Halloween and all of its thrills will finally be here. That means costumes, of course, but more than that it means piles of candy.
Candy, of course, has a bad a reputation when it comes to teeth. As you’ve been told all your life, candy causes cavities. And it’s true. But while sugar can have a detrimental effect on oral health, where’s the harm in splurging now and then?
That’s why Dr. Michel and the rest of our team at Michel Dental would like to wish everyone a happy, safe, and fun Halloween.
But we’d also like to encourage you to use Monday as a time to reinforce the basics of good oral health. Brushing and flossing are essential to maintaining a healthy smile, and learning how to do each at a young age can go a long ways towards helping your little one develop healthy habits that will last well into adulthood.
Have any questions about how you can help your son or daughter learn to brush and floss? Feel free to give our Topeka office a call today. Dr. Michel and our team would be happy to answer any questions you might have or set up an appointment for you.
