2016 is quickly coming to an end. With that comes the loss of any remaining dental benefits. The majority of dental insurance plans offer a calendar year maximum. If at the end of that year, those benefits aren’t used, they’re off in the Fall breeze!
Good for Bones & Blood
Vitamin K is an essential nutrient that helps your blood clot and your bones grow the way they should. It also may help prevent the bone disease osteoporosis and protect you against heart disease. You can get vitamin K from certain foods, but up to two-thirds of Americans don’t meet the daily recommended goal (90 micrograms for women and 120 micrograms for men).

For those that are following the Soccer World Cup, one of the biggest stories has been Uruguay’s Luis Suarez and his habit of biting opposing players on the field. Here at the dental office, we highly discourage biting anything other than food, of course, and especially not other people! But this incident did make us curious to look at other instances where bites have caused a stir.
Perhaps the biggest of all bites came from Mike Tyson during a boxing match against Evander Holyfield in a championship in which Tyson bit both of Holyfield’s ears. Tyson bit part of Holyfield’s right ear off and spit it onto the floor, then later bit his left ear. Tyson was fined 3 million dollars – that’s an expensive bite! Another famous bite happened in a 1983 NBA playoff game, during which Tree Rollins bit Danny Ainge so hard on the finger that it required stitches. In another incident in an NHL game, Alex Burrows of Vancouver allegedly bit the finger of Boston’s Patrice Bergeron while scuffling.
So what kind of damage can a human bite cause? Biting other people can actually cause a good deal of damage, because the average human bite contains approximately 100 pounds of force and can be even greater, limited only by the strength of an individual’s teeth. So instead of biting a person, bite into a big juicy piece of fruit!
We consider ourselves more than just professionals dealing with issues related to the mouth because we believe that the health of the oral cavity is directly linked to the overall health of your body. At our clinic, we offer an extensive range of services encompassing all aspects of dental healthcare, from consultation to treatment planning, screenings to preventive or prophylactic procedures, and surgical treatments to aesthetic corrections. Your satisfaction at all times remains our top priority – with our expertise and experience in the field, we aim to give you more and more reasons to smile every day!
OUR TEAM, OUR GREATEST ASSET: We take immense pride in the fact that our team is comprised of some of the brightest minds in the field.

We have incorporated leading current researches into our practices making each procedure more efficient, effective and streamlined. With the help of sophisticated modern equipment, we are now capable of executing tasks at outstanding pace, reduce overall patient chair time and promise unparalleled quality.
SAFETY AND PREVENTION FIRST: Keeping in view the number of diseases that are spread from hospitals and clinical settings each year, we have taken strict measures to implement cross-infection control protocols. Using the best equipment and materials that the market can offer, we have made sure that the sterilization and disinfection of our entire clinic meets international standards. From providing our team with durable protective gear, to using superior quality sterilizers for our instruments, at Metter & Griego you can always be sure that you and your family are 100% safe from germs of all sorts!
DENTAL CARE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY: It is an unfortunate fact that most dental practices in our country are devoid of a separate oral care department that deals solely with young patients. In our efforts to turn our clinic into one that caters to the entire family, we have established a fully-equipped pediatric dental unit so your children can receive the very best of dental care in the country. Our team of pediatric dentists is skilled at making children feel at home, even when they are at the clinic, and explaining them things in a way that is easy for them to understand and retain. We encourage patients to start bringing their children in for check-ups at young ages to make sure their oral heath is professionally evaluated at regular intervals and treatments are performed in a timely manner to prevent common dental infections that children are usually prone to. You need only to step into our clinic to experience the difference – if you’ve met disappointment in the practices, prices, quality and environment of other dental hospitals you have visited previously, you’ll find yourself pleasantly surprised upon interacting with our team. Explore our many services and feel free to drop by or call us, should you have any queries or questions related to our practices or about oral health in general.
FLAWLESS, PICTURE-PERFECT SMILES: Most dental surgeons tend to focus more on the aesthetic aspect of the smile instead of addressing pathological and anatomical issues first. We believe that you can only smile fully, confidently when you know that your oral cavity is devoid of any infections, structural deformities and related issues. Our team of aesthetic surgeons work closely with general dentists to make sure you leave our premises with a flawless, picture-perfect smile. We chart out comprehensive treatment plans to address even the tiniest of issues that may bother you in the future, leaving no stone unturned in giving you the very best oral care. With the latest in CAD/CAM and CEREC technologies, we provide patients with the most astounding smile makeovers imaginable and that too, within single sittings. Top quality, ultra resilient materials, state-of-the-art equipment, latest technology and experienced professionals come together to give you an experience you truly deserve, only at Mettler & Griego Family Dentistry.
If you’re still not convinced, and if our words seem too good to be true, book an appointment and make the judgement yourself – we’ll be more than happy to change your perspective on the state of general and cosmetic dentistry in the country!
