Baby Teeth DO Matter!

Maintaining your Childs Teeth: Brush 2x per day, floss as much as possible. Once in the morning and once before bed, to avoid cavities and avoid sugary drinks/food. The sugar mixed with plaque creates an acidic environment in the mouth that could take up to 30mins to be neutralised by the ions in our saliva, hence eating too much sugar can increase the chances of tooth decay.


Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are rear molars that developed their name due to the fact that they are usually the last teeth to come through the gums. This usually occurs when people are in their late teens, twenties or even older.
