What is tooth decay?
Tooth decay, also known as dental caries, is a disease of the teeth that affects individuals of all ages, although it is more common in children and young adults. Dental caries occurs when the tooth enamel is destroyed. Decay begins at the tooth’s hard external surface, and may advance to internal structures of the tooth including the dentin and pulp. The earlier decay is treated, the better chance of saving the tooth.
How does it happen?
The bacteria inside of the mouth changes the food (primarily sugars and starches) we eat into acids. Over a period of time, the bacteria and acids form a sticky deposit called dental plaque that clings to the teeth. If the plaque is not removed, the acids will destroy the tooth’s enamel surface –resulting in holes or cavities. Sugar and starches (such as candy, cakes, cookies, milk and pop) are responsible for much of tooth decay, but sour or acidic foods (such as lemons and fruit juices),
Can the Hydrofloss oral irrigator be used with tap water (containing minerals and fluoride) or does it require distilled water?
It is better to use tap water or filtered water that retains the trace minerals. Tap water was used for the clinical studies that were undertaken with the Hydrofloss Oral Irrigator. The reason for this is the hydromagnetic technology. The Hydrofloss places an electrical charge on the minerals and reverses their polarity as well as reversing the polarity of the bacteria in the mouth. Teeth have a positive charge on the surface, while bacteria and minerals are negatively charged, so they are attracted to one another. When using the Hydrofloss the polarity is reversed inhibiting the bacteria's ability to adhere to the teeth.
Is it safe to use the Hydofloss if you've had dental surgery or seriously inflamed gums?
The Hydrofloss Kitty Waterjet can be used by those

What is dental plaque?
Plaque is a colourless film that is constantly forming in the mouth. It is made up of a combination of bacteria, saliva and acids that form into a sticky deposit –adhering to the teeth. Plaque can irritate the gums and the acids can destroy the tooth’s enamel surface –causing holes or cavities. When plaque isn’t removed, it turns into calculus and tartar.
What is a plaque attack?
A “plaque attack” occurs when sugar and acids in the mouth begin to dissolve the enamel on the tooth and starts to decay.
How can you prevent plaque?

Dentists also recommend eating nutritiously and limiting the number of between-meal snacks.

What is oral cancer?
Oral and throat cancer, also referred to as pharyngeal cancer, may involve the lips, gums, tongue, teeth, cheeks, roof or floor of the mouth or back of the throat. It usually starts out as a small white spot that looks like an irritation, or an ulcer that may be red or white. The most common site is on the side of the tongue, and it oftentimes is not painful. The lesion may become infected and increase in size. There are 30,000 new cases of oral cancer each year, according to the National Centers for Disease Control. The Center estimates that 8,000 individuals die each year from oral cancer. Some tumors are benign, meaning non-cancerous, and others are malignant or cancerous. If a malignant growth is not treated, cancer cells can spread to other areas of the body. With early diagnosis and advanced technology, oral cancer can be treated with success.

What is periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease is also known as gum disease or periodontitis. There are various stages of gum disease, and the two most common forms are gingivitis and adult periodontitis.

When left untreated, gingivitis may progress to periodontal disease, which can progress to the loss of teeth. Only a professional –a dentist or periodontist –can diagnose gum disease, which often is painless. Research shows that periodontal disease may also be linked to heart, lung, kidney and respiratory disease, and to premature birth.
How does it progress?
A combination of bacteria and acids in the mouth form a sticky deposit called dental plaque that clings to the teeth. Plaque that is not removed from the teeth hardens into calculus and tartar, which aggravate the gums. Pockets (filled with plaque) form between the teeth and gums

When do teeth appear?
Teeth begin to erupt at about six months of age. The tooth appears first and the root begins to develop underneath. When a child’s mouth is fully developed there should be 20 teeth—10 on the bottom and 10 on the top. However, the top and bottom teeth erupt at different times.
Top: The central incisors, or very front teeth, are the first to erupt between 6 to 12 months. The teeth next to them, called the lateral incisors, erupt between 9 to 13 months. The canines erupt between 16 to
