Mouth Germs Grow at the Rate of 20 Billion Per Hour Causing Bad Breath, Cavities, Periodontal Disease and Missing Teeth

Rockville, MD dentist, Dr. Joseph Kravitz, discusses how oral diseases like cavities and gum disease start with digestion. You were mostly likely taught to eat healthy food, drink healthy drinks and think healthy thoughts.

When you eat food, there are germs called bacteria, fungi and viruses present to different extents. These germs can secrete acids that cause damage to your smile and health.

You were most likely taught to brush your teeth twice a day and eat healthier snacks between meals such as fruit and vegetables. If you brushed your teeth twice a day, the germs would grow to 240 billion every 12 hours. Yuck! That’s nasty. WARNING: It causes bad breath, cavities and periodontal disease too. Then you may be missing one or more teeth in your smile.

I am here to warn you that that is not enough. My revolutionary best selling book published 2010, Dirty Mouth, teaches you how to coexist with food and drink…and maintain a healthy smile.

Patients have written about Dr. Joseph Kravitz and his team members frequently with an average of 5 star reviews, over the last 20 years. I am filled with gratitude and appreciation for the dedication of the team at Kravitz Dentistry.

There is hope. There is help. With kindness. With love.
