Essential oils combat disease and keep smiles healthy for a lifetime.

What are Essential Oils, and How Are they Used in Dentistry?

I have long recommended Essential oils for the many health benefits they provide. When looking for an at home regimen for patients, I want something that is all natural, but beneficial in reducing bacterial load, reducing inflammation and helping to actively fight infection. Prescription strength products that contain alcohol, cause staining or tarter formation are no longer the gold standard in Periodontal Care. Essential oils have powerful anti-microbial properties that help us fight disease and accomplish better oral health.
