Prevention is the Key to Oral Health
Gum disease and tooth decay is the most common global disease affecting every family. Over 80% of cavities occur inside pits and fissures on chewing surfaces where brushing cannot reach food left trapped after every meal or snack and saliva or fluoride have no access.
A good daily dental hygiene routine will ensure your teeth and gums are rid of the daily build-up of plaque and tartar. Regular Dental Hygiene appointments are required to remove the plaque and tartar in those harder to reach places to prevent cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease.
