Preventing Tooth Decay will Preserve a Beautiful Smile

dca-blog_cavity-prevention-lollipop

Smiling, the joy of laughter, and cheer of good conversation are often taken for granted, without consideration of the possibility that all of those things could be taken away from you if you don’t carefully practice proper dental care. Tooth decay is the second most common health condition facing Americans, falling just shy of the common cold. And, left untreated, it can lead to gum disease, missing teeth, impaired speech, and a fallen face structure—taking all the joy out of face-to-face conversations.  Fortunately, preventing tooth decay is within your power.

Preserve your smile with these top cavity prevention tips.

Brush twice daily. Brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste for two minutes, at least twice a day. For even better cavity prevention, brush after every meal and snack. If you can’t brush that often, rinse your mouth thoroughly with water.

Rinse with mouthwash. Rinse with fluoride mouthwash twice a day for added help in preventing tooth decay.

Make routine dentist visits. Have dental exams and teeth cleanings at least twice a year. If you have dental issues, your dentist in Orange City may suggest more frequent visits.

Drink tap water. Most cities’ public water supplies contain fluoride to help with cavity prevention. Fluoridated tap water helps to remineralize teeth, and drinking water in general promotes saliva production, which washes away damaging bacteria.

Eat tooth-healthy foods. A heart-healthy diet reduces your risk of heart disease, and a tooth-healthy diet can protect your teeth. Tooth-healthy foods include cheese, fresh fruits and vegetables, tea, unsweetened coffee, and sugar-free chewing gum.

Ask about dental sealants. A skilled, affordable dentist may recommend sealants, which seal off grooves in the teeth where food can become trapped, and help in preventing tooth decay. With good dental care, sealants can last up to ten years.

Speak with your dentist. An affordable dentist in Orange City can make recommendations specific to your needs if you aren’t aware of all the options available for preventing tooth decay and other dental problems.
