         Can You Get Gum Disease From Kissing Someone?

YES! You can get gum disease from kissing, or even by sharing a drink or utensil. It might seem harmless, but here’s why you’re putting yourself at risk: The mouth contains a mixture of both good and bad bacteria, and those “bad” bacteria include the ones that cause cavities and gum disease. Kissing someone who has gum disease or cavity-causing bacteria  can cause someone else who previously had a low   concentration of “bad” bacteria to “catch” dental problems,  due to the increased concentration of “bad” bacteria  especially if that person has poor oral hygiene habits,                      which set the stage for tooth decay. Don't delay your dental check up any longer.                                                                        Love your teeth & your body.

Patients who only receive laughing gas as a sedative are often allowed to drive themselves home after a procedure.
When you receive laughing gas, the dentist gives you a nose apparatus through which you breathe the gas. The effects are very mild, and you’ll start to feel the gas very quickly, sometimes as soon as 30 seconds after you start breathing it in. Some patients relax enough with nitrous oxide and do not require another form of sedation. Other patients need laughing gas on top of oral sedation. Oral Sedation

Life is a paddleboat  


Do you ever feel like you are sinking in problems? Are you feeling overwhelmed by life? Do you feel like no matter how hard you try you just keep sinking  and the load is to heavy for you to keep moving forward? Is your faith being tested again and again? Life is much like a paddleboat slowly filling up with water and getting heavier and heavier and harder to paddle and slowly sinking in the middle of the lake. I learned a lot about paddleboats and life on Saturday July 7th, 2018 when I was at the end of my rope with life. I felt buried in problems, I was depressed, I had gained some weight from depression and I was in chronic pain in my body from stress and depression. I had cried out to God many times to help me and he heard me, I just didn't know it yet. My friend Doc invited me to the lake for the weekend, so I went to get away and relax. We decided against our better judgement to take out his paddle boat even with rough waters and high winds.We started …
