For most people, your smile is highly susceptible to bacteria, plaque buildup, harmful acids, and other forms of enamel erosion. That is why it is essential to search for effective cavity prevention plans to keep your smile safe each day.
To keep your smile safe from the risk of cavities, it is important to visit your dentist to determine if any dental erosion damage has already occurred. If erosion occurs to the point that a cavity has developed on your tooth enamel, this will need to be addressed quickly to restore your oral health. It will need to be treated with a dental filling to ensure the tooth can remain safe from further damage. If left untreated, this could lead to tooth loss and gum disease.
However, establishing an effective cavity prevention plan is critical to ensure that the damage does not happen. An excellent plan includes brushing your teeth twice a day, every day. Try to use toothbrush products that are soft and non-abrasive. In addition, use dental floss that can accurately clean between each and every tooth, even the teeth in the far back. Water flossers have also been proven effective for flossing in the hard-to-reach places while promoting positive oral health.
Numerous products can help prevent cavities. Some of these include products that help promote the addition of saliva in your mouth. Saliva is a natural substance in your mouth that is extremely beneficial for cavity prevention as it can neutralize harmful acids and wash away food debris. Studies have shown that by chewing sugarless gum after meals, you can help prevent cavities by adding saliva to your mouth.
