Letting plaque build-up will lead to decay and tartar build up too.

Choose a good family dentist who can treat your whole family and has experience with patients of all ages. They will be experienced ant treating families for many years and building a good relationship with all members of the family. It is also a great way to teach children that dentists are not scary and are there to help. If they have been around them and know the surgery they are less likely to feel nervous or scared.
