A Healthy Mouth

Dental decay and gum disease are entirely preventable with good oral hygiene and diet.

Prevention is better than cure!

Good dental health begins with you. Brushing your teeth for 2 minutes twice a day, equates to nearly 24 hours of toothbrushing a year!!

Gum Disease

  • Brush your teeth twice a day using fluoride toothpaste.
  • Have sugary drinks and snacks less often and try to limit these to meal times.
