“It can be asserted without reservation that for all practical purposes, any person, at any age, can begin and maintain his or her teeth without further deterioration or loss during the remainder of life."
"Therefore, correct information about these conditions must be based upon microscopic research. Opinions and ideas not conforming to these facts, which can be established only by microscopic work, are confusing, often entirely erroneous.”
“Good dental health service must include removal of hard concretions and calculus from the teeth within the gingival crevices and teaching the patient how to clean his teeth effectively, which can be done only by the proper use of both toothbrush and dental floss. Each person must learn how to do this, and do it consistently.”
"A Clean Tooth Does Not Decay, nor does periodontoclasia occur about a clean tooth." C. C. Bass, M.D.
