The millions of bacteria that make up Peter Plaquer can also cause tooth decay and gum disease. But don’t worry!

Medicine Hat Pediatric Dentistry’s second most wanted is Jim Gingi is a sneaky nemesis who can bounce around in the sugars left behind in a dirty mouth.

Regular brushing, flossing, and visits to your favourite pediatric dentist in Medicine Hat are the best ways to combat Jim Ginigi’s plan to take over your teeth. Keep up the good work!
