If we are totally honest, we’ve all skipped a few of our daily oral hygiene practices; after all, it won’t make any difference, will it? Skipping flossing a few times isn’t going to be a problem you might think, but that leads to a change in routine and over a period of time, this can result in tooth decay.

Every person has bacteria in their mouth; it is perfectly natural, yet sugary foods provide nourishment for some bacteria and a by-product is the creation of acids that erode the tooth enamel. The secret to successful oral hygiene is simple; brush and floss after every meal, plus before and after bed, and this means the food residue is no longer present, therefore it will not feed the bacteria and the acids that cause tooth decay will not be present. If you have yet to register with a local dentist, contact one of the dentists in Varsity Lakes, who would be happy to have you as a patient, and after an initial examination, the next check-up appointment can be made.
