How Alcohol Could Be Changing The Bacteria In Your Mouth

Could alcohol change the bacteria in your mouth?

Enjoying just one alcoholic drink could be changing the bacteria in your mouth. Furthermore, it could lead to oral cancer according to a new study.

These areas are called pockets, healthy pockets are 3 – 4 millimetres deep.  For instance, if they are deeper than 5 millimetres you may require a deep scale.
