Preventative treatment is especially important in today’s oral health world. Tooth decay is a commonly seen problem that can be easily stopped by basic knowledge of good oral upkeep.
Many people have gone to the dentist to deal with a cavity, but understanding some basic things about your mouth can prevent needing to deal with tooth decay.
This video will show how tooth decay and cavities can set in:
Quick Tips for avoiding Tooth Decay:
Fluoride supplements or fluoridated municipal water can be helpful in maintaining the mineralization of the enamel. Even more quick and easy to use are fluoride-containing rinses and toothpastes, which can be easily worked into a daily oral care routine.
Many acidic foods will rapidly degrade the tooth when left on the surface for long periods of time. Be sure to clean sugary and acidic food off your teeth, especially right before going to bed.
Brushing your teeth twice daily is critical for your mouth and gum health. Before going to bed, pay extra attention to cleaning your teeth well.
Chewing sugarless gum after a meal or snack can be beneficial in removing bits of food and sugars from the surface of the teeth. The physical act of chewing gum after a meal stimulates saliva production and scrapes the gums and teeth clean of small food particles.
