Simply Keeping Teeth Healthy!

Keeping Teeth Healthy

   Using a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste twice a day, keeps plaque off the surfaces of  
   the teeth before it hardens into tartar or calculus.

   Flossing once a day complements this twice-a-day brushing, by lifting plaque off the 
   enamel between adjacent teeth. If not removed, acids released by the bacteria in plaque 
   will eventually erode tooth enamel and cause cavities to form in the teeth.

 
   Use of a mouthwash off and on is advisable.

   Scaling and polishing (Professional cleaning), once in 6 months is recommended.
