What do you put your smile through in a typical day? It might be an odd question, but remember that every time you eat or drink, your teeth face risks, and not just cavity risks. Over time, wear and tear will occur. You could be contributing to your risk by choosing a diet that is more acidic, which can lead to the wearing down of your enamel. And of course, a diet high in sugar does certainly carry cavity risks. You should be taking the time to brush at least two times every day, and you should floss at least once. Smart daily habits, in addition to routine visits with your dentist for preventive care, can help you keep your smile in superior condition.
Starting And Ending Your Day With A Good Teeth Cleaning
Your brushing and flossing habits can make an important difference in your efforts to avoid needing restorative dental care. The number of times you brush and floss can make a difference, but you should also make sure you are performing these actions thoroughly, to enjoy the best possible outcome.
Pay Attention To Your Snacking And Meal Habits
When it is time for a snack, do you head to the vending machine, or pick up a piece of fruit? Remember, consuming more sugar can lead to greater cavity risks, as oral bacteria on your teeth feed on those sugars, and that can lead to tooth decay.
Combining Daily Care With Routine Checkups
Good daily care will help in your fight against cavities, but you still need the support of your dentist. At every checkup, you receive a professional cleaning of your teeth, and your dentist provides a careful examination, to spot any possible problems.
