Dentistry 101: Preventing Cavities

Dentistry 101: Preventing Cavities Tooth decay occurs when acid attacks the tooth and causes the enamel to lose minerals. Bacteria creates these acids as it feeds on the sugar in your food. Sometimes the enamel is able to recover on its own, however it is possible that permanent damage in the form of a cavity can develop where the enamel is destroyed. Cavities cannot heal on their own, and must be repaired by a dentist with a filling. If not treated, the tooth will continue to decay, causing pain, infection, and even tooth loss. The best way to protect your teeth from decay is to prevent cavities altogether. Here are a few tips to help keep your teeth healthy and cavity-free:

Brush and floss daily

By brushing and flossing daily, you can disrupt the plaque buildup that eventually leads to cavities. The American Dental Association recommends brushing twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste and flossing once daily.

Use toothpaste with fluoride

Having great dental hygiene at all ages is important, after all, we all want to keep our teeth sparkly and clean throughout these wonderful years of our lives! Picking out the right toothbrush can be hard work; especially with all the choices available to us. Let us help you navigate the ins and outs of choosing the perfect toothbrush, and if you have further questions, don’t hesitate to contact our office.

Babies

Dental care should not be *brushed* under the rug just because you can’t see your baby’s teeth yet. You want the best for your little one and that includes a healthy mouth.

Choose a toothbrush with a smaller handle so it fits in the child’s hands and is not intimidating. Allowing them to brush their own teeth teaches independence and long-lasting oral care habits. When they are young you want to let them practice doing their teeth themselves, however, until you have full confidence you should go back over their teeth to ensure they
