Enjoying a Cavity-Free Smile: Our Top Prevention Tips

March 25, 2024

Did you know that according to the World Health Organization, 60-90% of children worldwide, and nearly 100% of adults have dental cavities? It's true! However, with proper oral care and regular checkups at our office, your risk of tooth decay significantly lowers. At Wellwood Family Dentistry, we offer a wide range of services designed to help you maintain optimal oral health, no matter your age.

The science behind cavity development

A cavity begins when dental plaque is not consistently removed from around the teeth and gums. But did you know that a diet high in sugary sweets, acidic foods, and beverages can also increase your risk for tooth decay? Other factors include dry mouth, teeth grinding, receding gums, and deeply grooved dental enamel.

As dedicated providers of care, we firmly believe that prevention is the key to maintaining excellent oral health. We encourage you to visit our office regularly for routine checkups to catch any signs of dental disease early on and prevent more severe consequences down the line.

How our practice helps you keep your teeth healthy

When you come in for a checkup at our office, you can trust that your smile is in good hands. Our experienced dentist uses advanced technology to thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, and jaw for any signs of dental problems. In addition to this assessment, every visit includes a comprehensive professional cleaning to remove any plaque or tartar build-up you may have missed while brushing or flossing at home. We'll also discuss how you can improve your home care routine so that you can continue taking excellent care of your teeth between appointments.

While tooth decay is a widespread concern, it doesn't have to be inevitable. By scheduling regular checkups with us at Wellwood Family Dentistry, we can help prevent cavities and keep your teeth healthy. As part of our commitment to providing state-of-the-art care, we offer personalized solutions tailored to meet all of your dental needs.
