We all know that prevention is better than cure. All dental disease is easily preventable and we are keen to encourage our clients to understand that. Cavities come about when sugar is available from the diet for the bacteria in the mouth to make an acid which will destroy the teeth by dissolving the minerals. Ensuring that the teeth are kept clean with regular brushing and flossing and regular professional cleaning, as well as reducing the amount and the frequency of sugar intake will help prevent decay.
Gum disease is easily prevented by reducing the amount pf plaque in the mouth which will ensure the gums are not being subjected to toxins released by bacteria in the plaque.
