Oral Hygiene

A beautiful smile is in your hands! Regular brushing, flossing and good diet are the weapons against decay and gum disease. Regular dental check ups are also vital, so close cooperation between the patient and the dental practitioners will guarantee a life long healthy smile.

Food remnants are attached to the tooth surface, are getting enriched with bacteria and they form an almost invisible layer called plaque. These bacteria break down the food remnants producing acids that destroy the enamel causing decay. They can also affect the health of the surrounding gums causing gingivitis or periodontitis. Plaque left over time hardens and turns into tartar. Good oral hygiene can easily maintain all dental and periodontal tissues healthy.
