How You and Your Family Can Fight Cavities

Watch Out for Bacteria!

Without regular brushing, flossing or rinsing with mouth wash, bacteria in your mouth will cause your teeth enamel to breakdown and can eventually cause cavities. Decay and bad breath will eventually develop and you may lose your teeth.
