fresh breath. It actively prevents gum disease & reduces the risk of tooth loss & other dental conditions.

Getting a regular professional cleaning will remove plaque, tartar & stains from your teeth which form over a period of time. These forms of layers

cannot be removed by regular brushing.

Prevention is less expensive than cure ! Regular twice daily care of your teeth & gums will prevent future problems and avoid visits to the dentist.

Gum infections ( Gingivitis) is caused by the plaque build up around your teeth leading to bleeding gums & swelling. Ultimately this would leading

to bone loss around teeth followed by tooth loss, requiring dentures or implants.

Bad bacteria from the mouth can travel to your blood stream & increase the chance of heart attack or stroke .

Gum disease makes it harder to control blood glucose. Diabetic patients are more susceptible to serious gum disease therefore utmost precaution
