Dental Tip from Dr. Leske (Hales):-
Dr. Leske (Hales)’s tip for her patients is to get to know your teeth, take note in the mirror while or after brushing of your teeth. Look for changes with both your eyes and your tongue. If you know your teeth, and your dentist knows your teeth, problems can be detected and treated earlier, often eliminating the need for more complex treatment.
