A good daily dental hygiene regimen will ensure your teeth and gums are rid of the daily build up of plaque and tartar. However, only a visit to the dentist will ensure complete removal of the plaque and tartar in those harder to reach places to prevent cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease.
Gum disease and tooth decay is the most common global disease affecting nearly everyone. Over 50% 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 has no access to neutralize the acid and remineralise demineralised tooth. This is why regular appointments with one of our dental health providers are so beneficial; our team can reach all the places that the common toothbrush cannot!
