    Sweet-tooth robbers steal 18 tonnes of chocolate!

    Some chocolate-loving thieves have stolen a truckload of chocolate!

    A truck loaded with 33 pallets of milk chocolate was sneakily stolen by a few crafty thieves who pretended to be delivery men so they could make off with the truckload to themselves! At Karalee Family Dental, all we can say is that is a lot of dental cavities!

    Why a sweet tooth can be damaging to your oral health…

    At Karalee Family Dental we understand how sugary foods can speed up tooth decay, and want our patients to understand it, too! Mouths that are subjected to highly sugary foods and drinks are more susceptible to harmful bacteria in the mouth. This bacterium thrives on sugary consumables and if eaten often this bacteria multiplies and eats away the tooth enamel, causing decay and in severe cases periodontal disease.

    Your oral health at home…

    At Karalee Family Dental we offer a wide array of dental treatments to ensure your oral health. While we can take care of your teeth in the dental chair, our efforts will mean nothing if you do not take up a good oral health routine at home! For an effective dental treatment to be maintained you should:

    • Brush your teeth twice daily
    • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush
    • Floss at least once daily
    • Ensure you consume a low-sugar diet
    • Visit our Karalee dental practice every six months

    If this routine is maintained you can be sure to enjoy optimal oral health between your visits with us! At Karalee Family Dental, we are here to look after the oral health of both you and your family!
