11
What is "Sterilization and Disposables"? Why do I have to pay "Sterilization and Disposables" Charges each time I visit the clinic?
 
These are essentially items that we use in infection control such as gloves, masks, gowns, disposable cups/bibs, disinfectant, autoclaving paper/pouch etc. Having proper infection control procedures in place ensure that infectious diseases like Hepatitis B, AIDS, TB, SARs etc are not spread from one person to another. We want to give all our patients a peace of mind that we take their safety seriously and want to do our best to protect them. All along we have been absorbing the Sterilization and Disposables charges. However, with the recent increase in costs, we are no longer able to do so and thus have to pass the additional charges to patients.
12
What is plaque?
 
Plaque is a soft sticky substance caused by bacteria and food. It forms on your teeth and causes a furry feeling. It can build up in between teeth and at the gum line and turns into calculus (or tartar) if it is left in your mouth over a period of time.
13
Why is plaque bad for my teeth?
 
When you eat, the bacteria in the plaque eat too! The plaque bacteria then produce acids which can dissolve the minerals which make up the tooth. As a result, a hole or cavity is formed. This process is called decay.
14
Why is plaque bad for my gums?
 
The acids produced by the bacteria in the plaque not only damage the teeth but also damage the structures that hold the teeth within the jaw.
