Cavities present themselves when we don’t take enough care of our teeth. Whilst some people are more susceptible to cavities than others due to the makeup of their genes, there are many methods we can stick to that can reduce the likeliness of them forming.
Watch your diet
What we eat is what controls the state of our teeth in between brushing. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’re more likely to have cavity-causing acids on your teeth from the consistent sugary snacking.
Replace sugary drinks such as energy drinks, juices and fizzy drinks and replace it with a regular consumption of water.
Replace your sugary snack consumption with healthy fruits and vegetables instead. This will improve both your oral and overall health.
Have regular dentist trips
Your dentist can check for cavities that are beginning to form and help treat them before the situation gets too far developed. They also take x-rays to see the true health of your teeth to find weak spots that may need more attention during your oral hygiene routine.
They can also help prevent the worsening of a situation with the aid of dental sealants, which keep the cavity creating bacteria off of your teeth.
Floss regularly, brush daily with fluoride toothpaste and rinse with mouthwash.
