Why Should I Brush My Teeth?

   

    Microorganisms grow in everyone's mouths. In just 15 minutes after brushing these bacteria begin forming a substance that coats the tooth. The bacteria act like tiny drills making holes in your teeth. Then decay sets in and your tooth begins to ache. If it is not fixed, eventually you could loose your teeth. 

    Brushing twice daily, flossing at least once a day, and making two trips to the dentist each year may seem like too much effort for our busy lifestyles. You may be wondering if all of this is really necessary. It is vital that you perform regular preventive maintenance for your teeth and visit your dentist before you notice problems for early detection. In dentistry, by the time you begin to experience pain, usually radical treatment is required. And your teeth rarely repair themselves.
