Are you suffering from tooth decay or feel you are at an increased risk of cavities? The best way to ensure your teeth have the greatest chance of success against cavities is to always practice effective cavity prevention treatments. That is why our office is happy to give you these tips on preventing cavities.

In order to ensure you are actively preventing cavities from arising, it is important to brush at least twice every day and floss every day to make it effective and improve your oral health and smile. Also, always make sure you’re eating a healthy diet that includes enamel building materials such as calcium and phosphorus and avoiding snacks in between meals.

Try to visit your dentist as much as possible for routine checkups. In addition, your dentist can determine if your oral hygiene habits are being done efficiently or if there any areas in your smile you’re missing with your daily cleaning routines.  Furthermore, you can visit your dentist for a professional cleaning every six months.

Chewing sugarless gum can also be used to help wash away food debris and bacteria from your smile after meals. This is essential after eating when brushing may be too difficult due to sensitivity from eating harmful acids in your food. As an alternative, consider trying mouthwash and chewing gum to clean your mouth after meals. Mouthwash can rinse away bad bacteria and help prevent bad breath, and chewing gum can neutralize harmful acids and protect against cavities.
