Tooth Decay or dental caries as we call it occurs when dental plaque, sugar and acids dissolve your enamel and dentine.

Sometimes, you will feel pain in your teeth which may indicate tooth decay. It can often be a pain-free process until decay becomes severe. If detected early enough it can be resolved with a filling.

Your best protection against dental caries is daily brushing, flossing, using fluoride toothpaste, healthy low sugar & acidic diet and maintaining regular dental visits.

Dental cleans are required as plaque can be trapped in the grooves of your teeth, in between your teeth and in your roots which regular brushing and flossing cannot reach.

Book an appointment with our dentist to discuss preventative methods.
