HOW YOUR TEETH & GUMS CAN BECOME SICK

Your Teeth & Gums in danger

Tooth enamel is hard. It consists of many closely-packed rods made of minerals. In healthy teeth, porous tissue called dentin is protected by gums and the tooth hard enamel shell.

However, when you eat, acid forms on the outside of the tooth and seeps into the enamel rods. This demineralization process can produce weak spots in the tooth surfaces. If you do not take care of your teeth, they can easily become sick.

Only by good oral hygiene, following dentist recommended home care routine (brushing and flossing) and regular professional dental care, you are able to maintain your teeth and gums healthy.
