Protecting Your Teeth from Decay

June 10, 2024

Did you know that up to 90% of children worldwide, and almost all adults have dental cavities? According to the World Health Organization, this is a significant health concern. However, with proper oral care, your risk of tooth decay can be significantly reduced. At our dental office, we offer a comprehensive range of preventative and dental services designed to help patients of all ages maintain optimal oral health.

Understanding the Causes of Tooth Decay

Tooth decay occurs when dental plaque is not consistently removed from around your teeth and gums. Your risk for cavities increases if you consume a diet high in sugary sweets, acidic foods, and beverages or if you experience dry mouth, teeth grinding, receding gums, or deeply grooved dental enamel. As experienced dental professionals, we emphasize the importance of preventative care as the best way to maintain optimal oral health. We also recommend regular checkups for early detection and treatment of any developing dental issues.

In addition to an assessment of your oral health, every exam performed by our dentist includes a thorough professional teeth cleaning to remove any accumulations of plaque or tartar that you may have missed while brushing or flossing. We'll also review your home care routine and offer guidance on how to clean and care for your teeth more effectively between checkups.
