Preventing Cavities

preventing cavities

Cavities are another name for tooth decay. They’re small holes that form in the teeth due to decay caused by acid, either from bacteria or diet. These bacteria thrive in environments where dental hygiene is poor, so regular cleanings, as well as good brushing and flossing habits are vital.

If cavities aren’t dealt with quickly, they can lead to more serious dental problems that could require a crown, or even a root canal. Thankfully, there is a relatively simple way to deal with cavities when they do form: fillings.

The best way to deal with cavities it to prevent them before they occur. As we’ve already mentioned, good oral hygiene is where it all starts. However, that’s just one piece of the puzzle. Your diet also plays a big role in your oral health. Acidic drinks such as soda, sports drinks, and energy drinks, along with sugary foods and “junk” food, are the prime suspects where cavities are concerned. 

Seeing your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and checkups is another great way to get ahead of dental issues before they get out of hand. During routine cleanings, your oral hygienist or dentist will often note problem areas to continue to monitor. If there are problems, taking care of them quickly is the best way to prevent escalating oral issues or spreading decay. Preventing cavities prevents more costly oral problems, which keeps everybody happy!
