How do I prevent tooth decay?
Tooth decay and cavities can affect children and adults, even young patients with primary teeth. Routine dental care focuses on the prevention of disease including tooth decay. Regular visits will include an exam and laser cavity detection, spotting the signs of decay in the very early stages. A thorough dental cleaning will remove any plaque that could lead to decay if left untreated. We will monitor the health and condition of your teeth and gums and work with you to manage any factors that could affect your dental health such as a medical condition.
A daily at home oral hygiene routine supports your regular dental care. This should include brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. In addition, there are several oral habits that can minimize the risk of decay:
- Rinsing with an anti-bacterial rinse when recommended by your dentist or hygienist.
- Drinking water, especially after meals to rinse and cleanse the teeth.
- Minimizing or avoiding sugary drinks and snacks.
- Quitting a smoking or tobacco use habit.
- Eating a varies and nutritious diet.
