Take Control – Simple Steps for Cavity Prevention

dca-blog_cavity-prevention-lollipop

Having healthy teeth is important for maintaining your overall health, so preventing cavities should be high on your list of priorities. Cavities are a common result of unchecked tooth decay and poor dental hygiene. Fortunately, with the right tools, a good oral hygiene routine, and quality dental care from an affordable dentist in Florida, you can keep your smile healthy and bright.

The bacteria in your mouth generate acids that cause erosion of the tooth’s enamel, leading to tooth decay and cavities. When a cavity becomes big enough to expose the tooth’s nerve, it becomes painful and requires more-invasive treatment.

Following a consistent dental care routine is the most important step in preventing tooth decay and cavities. Follow these cavity prevention steps:

  • Brush at least twice a day with a high-quality toothbrush that will reach all the surfaces of your teeth.
  • Floss at least once a day.
  • Select an ADA-approved toothpaste. There are many varieties of toothpaste—for sensitivity, tartar control, and teeth whitening—so ask your dentist for a recommendation.
  • Use a mouthwash to help eliminate bacteria and freshen breath. There are alcohol-free varieties if you have a sensitive mouth.
  • Use a tongue scraper to help remove bacteria from your tongue.

If you already have a cavity, seek treatment from an affordable dentist in Florida as soon as possible.
