Keeping Tooth Decay At Bay

 

tooth decay

Tooth decay or cavities usually occur in children and young adults but can affect people of all ages. They're the most common cause of tooth loss.

It starts when acids, formed in your mouth, eat away at your tooth enamel. Treatment for tooth decay depends on how bad it is.

Once a cavity has destroyed part of a tooth, the tooth can't repair itself. That's why it's important to see a dentist or dental hygienist regularly to have your teeth cleaned and examined. Some people benefit from fluoride treatments to help strengthen tooth enamel.

For a healthy set of teeth and gums, brushing and flossing properly offer the greatest amount of protection between regular dentist visits. Here are some helpful tips from the health experts at HealthyOntario.com:

 

Brushing Basics

  • Using a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, brush for two and a half to three minutes twice a day.

  • Place the toothbrush at a slight angle where the teeth meet the gums.

  • Brush gently in a circular movement.

  • Brushing too hard, or using a hard toothbrush, can damage gums and teeth.

  • Make sure to cover all sides of every tooth.

  • Give your tongue and the insides of your cheeks a good scrub too.

Floss is Boss

  • Floss at least once a day.

  • Be gentle - harsh flossing damages gums.

  • If your gums bleed, you may be flossing too hard, or your gums may not be healthy. See your dentist for advice.

  • If you don't know how to floss, your dental hygienist will be more than happy to give you a lesson.
