Are you doing enough to keep your smile safe from the risk of cavities? Cavity prevention is often one of the most important aspects of your oral health care. A cavity occurs when a hole in your tooth enamel forms. If left untreated, it can give rise to pulp disease and eventual tooth loss. To prevent the loss of a tooth due to any cavities, establish effective cavity prevention plans.

As cavities often arise as holes in your tooth enamel, you will need to find ways to help strengthen your tooth enamel and limit the risks of dental erosion. Because dental erosion often arises due to harmful acids in your diet, consider which foods and drinks you may be consuming that are putting your teeth at risk. Furthermore, be aware of any type of unhealthy habits in your life that could be giving rise to plaque buildup.

If you do have any plaque buildup in your mouth, it is important to make sure that all debris and bacteria are washed away as best as possible. Consider using non-abrasive cleaning utensils after eating such as mouthwash. Furthermore, don’t forget the importance of brushing twice a day and flossing once daily too.
