Preventing Tooth Decay

Preventing Tooth Decay in OK In OK and around the country, tooth decay is one of the most widespread childhood issues, yet tooth decay also affects adults. Flawless Smile Dentistry serves people from 5 to 99 years old to help fight tooth decay.

Blame it on Bacteria

Bacteria is the cause of tooth decay. Bacteria live in your mouth and blend with plaque and acids to break down the enamel coating on your teeth. The breakdown of your tooth enamel can often result in the development of small holes in your teeth which are known as cavities.

Lifestyle Factors

Tooth decay is typically a result of diet and oral hygiene choices. When sticky foods are consumed and allowed to sit on the teeth, or foods full of sugars and starches are consumed throughout the day, cavities can arise. Foods to avoid include soda and sugary chewing gum; these foods tend to create an environment where bacteria thrive.

To help prevent cavities, simply limit sugary and starchy foods between meals. Also, brushing at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing at least once a day, and visiting your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings will help prohibit tooth decay.
