A piece of good news is dental problems can be prevented. Dental caries, also known as dental decay or tooth decay is a common dental problem many people face. This occurs when food that contains sugar and starch is taken in high amounts. The bacteria in the mouth digest this kind of food which in turn forms acid. This acid attacks the tooth/teeth. Repeated attacks start breaking down enamel, the outer-most layer of the tooth. This can become a major cavity in the tooth. This article discusses how to prevent dental caries/cavities.
Preventing dental caries/cavities
Following are ways to prevent dental cavities:
- Brushing after each meal: Brushing twice a day is a good practice to maintain oral hygiene. It is advisable to brush after each meal. This has a major effect on fighting cavities. See to it that you use a toothpaste that contains appropriate amount of fluoride. This is because fluoride helps in making teeth strong.
- Rinsing your mouth: There are many mouthwashes available to you in the market. These mouthwashes are clinically proven for reducing plaque. Rinsing your mouth with these mouthwashes after eating help prevent cavities.
- Visiting the dentist regularly: Generally, cavities do not show any signs in the early stage and can only be detected by dental professionals. Visiting the dentist every six months and getting the teeth cleaned by them plays a major role in preventing cavities/tooth decay.
- Considering dental sealants: This involves applying a protective shield like coating to the surface of the back teeth. These sealants help in protecting the teeth from cavities. Sealants are more commonly used in children as they will be growing permanent teeth. All the same, sealants are beneficial for adults too.
- Avoiding frequent snacking: Eating or drinking frequently without taking water means you are feeding the bacteria in the mouth that creates acid. Water help in washing away of left over food which will otherwise can leave your teeth surface clogged with food. If you snack frequently is like keeping your teeth under constant attack.
- Avoiding sugary and starchy diet: Avoid diet that contains high amount of sugar and starch. This is because bacteria in your mouth react with such kind of food and forms acid. This acid attacks the tooth which can breakdown the tooth’s surface that can progress to more serious one.
- Avoid eating or drinking right before going to bed: Finally, to prevent cavities, it is important to avoid consuming food that contains carbohydrates before going to bed. This is done because there is no production of saliva when you sleep and your mouth becomes dry. Dry mouth is more prone to tooth decay.
Following these points helps you prevent dental caries.
