Prevention and care after operation
The best way to prevent periodontits and tooth decay is to maintain good oral health care. Brushing is essential for every day routine and will help you to remove a thin sticky film of bacteria, called plaque that grows on your teeth. Cleaning between the teeth once a day with floss removes plaque from between the teeth where teeth brush may not reach. . Brushing and flossing are both important in preventing gum disease.
