HOW TO PREVENT TOOTH DECAY

The bacteria in your mouth naturally thrives on the sugars found in the foods that you consume, like candy, soda, breads, and milk. Because plaque is a sticky film, it allows the bacteria to stay put and slowly wear down your enamel overtime. When this happens, cavities form.

MORE ABOUT TOOTH DECAY

If bacteria is allowed to stay on the teeth for a prolonged period of time, your gums can begin to recede and increase your chances of gum disease and more advanced tooth decay, as the root of your tooth will be exposed. Plaque that stays on the teeth and is not removed on a daily basis can harden and turn into tartar, which requires professional cleaning to remove.

Cavities are often problematic for children, but because of the effects of aging, they can also be problematic for adults. Cavities cause permanent damage to the affected tooth and must be taken care of in order to prevent the loss of your natural tooth. However, this does not mean that the cavity cannot be treated. Fillings, crowns, root canals, and tooth extractions are methods of healing and protecting your teeth from decay.

At Restorative and Implant Dentistry, our Pompano Beach FL dentists are highly trained and experienced in removing plaque and tartar from your teeth and detecting signs of decay in its earliest stages. The easiest way to avoid tooth decay is to stop it before it starts. During your regular dental visits, your dentist will carefully examine your teeth for signs of decay and work closely with you to develop a personalized and comprehensive treatment plan if any decay is detected.
