Happy Shark Week everyone! Set your DVR’s for shark greatness! My wife and I enjoy scuba diving. Being underwater away from the rest of the world offers peace and tranquility amongst the sea creatures. We prefer to see footage of the big sharks, however, from the comfort of our couch!
Do you know why sharks never have to visit the dentist? Sharks continue to grow and shed teeth even until adulthood. Cavities… no problem! They can expect to grow replacement teeth soon enough. Humans, on the other hand, only get one set of adult teeth. This is why oral care for us humans is so important. Getting cavities taken care of when they are small is important to save tooth structure. This Shark Week think of your own mouth as you are watching these amazing creatures on TV! Come in for a checkup!
