Why Prevention is very important?

  • removing discoloration and deposits on the tooth surface,
  • tooth varnishing (using various available preparations containing fluorine, calcium, phosphorus),
  • oral hygiene instruction including learning the proper brushing techniques, choosing a brush, paste, thread and other accessories that help in daily oral hygiene,
