Dentistry for All Ages

Throughout your lifetime, your dental needs will vary. The most important thing to remember is that cavities are caused by bacterial waste. Bacteria is contagious, they eat carbohydrates, this can be candy, milk, fruit and even vegetables. Just like we eat and have waste, they eat the sugars you eat and convert that into an acidic waste byproduct that dissolves the enamel on our teeth. They live in that sticky white plaque and biofilm on the surface of your teeth and under the gum line. It is necessary to BRUSH TWICE DAILY, FLOSS ONCE A DAY AND RINSE WITH WATER AFTER EVERY MEAL.
