Tips for Cavity Prevention
1. Make sure your teeth are REALLY clean!
We recommend using a mechanical toothbrush to help you remove all the plaque from your teeth. You should be brushing twice a day and flossing once a day.
2. Use Fluoride
Whether it’s your toothpaste or your mouthwash, make sure it contains fluoride.
3. Make Good Nutritional Choices
It helps prevent cavities when you choose food and drinks with less acid and sugar. If you do eat acidic, sugary, or sticky foods, having a glass of water afterwards will help neutralize the harmful effects.
4. Treat Your Dry Mouth
If you typically have reduced saliva due to medications, or any other reasons, we recommend you drink a lot of water to keep your mouth producing a healthy amount of saliva. This will help reduce cavity-causing bacteria found in your mouth.
5. Take Oral Probiotics
Oral probiotics can be taken to create and maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in our mouths.
6. Frequent Dental Visits
If you are at a higher risk for cavities and dental decay, it’s recommended that you see a dentist every 3 months. Give us a call today to schedule your next appointment.
There are two types of dentures – complete and partial dentures. A complete denture may be recommended when all of the teeth on either the upper and/or lower arch are missing. Where as a partial denture may be the right option when some of the natural teeth remain. A partial denture is also beneficial in that it not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting in a patient’s mouth.
