Are you suffering from tooth decay and dental erosion? If so, a hole in your tooth enamel also known as a cavity, could eventually form. Stomping out the effects of cavities should not be understated. Here are some things you can do to prevent cavities:
– Eat a diet that is healthy and nutritious to make sure your smile is getting the key minerals it needs to keep your teeth and gums durable and healthy.
– Make it a habit to brush your teeth at least twice daily and to floss your teeth once daily.
– Avoid foods and substances that are sticky and chewy, which tend to remain in your mouth long after eating them and cause oral health disorders.
– Use cleaning products that are recommended or approved by your dentist.
– Use extra cleaning tools such as water flossers, mouthwash, and sugarless gum to help clean your mouth when brushing and flossing is not accessible or advised.
– Look for dental care products that come with the ADA Seal of Acceptance, which guarantees the safety and effectiveness of the products pass the highest standards in the industry.
– Schedule professional cleanings with your dentist every six months and schedule checkups as needed.
– Avoid harmful sugars that can turn into plaque buildup and harmful acids in your mouth, which are known to cause dental erosion.
