Secrets to Keeping Your Teeth Cavity-Free

March 25, 2024

Dental cavities are a common issue, with the World Health Organization reporting that 60-90% of children worldwide, and nearly 100% of adults suffer from tooth decay. Fortunately, there are ways to significantly lower your risk of developing cavities, and our dental practice is here to help. We offer comprehensive preventive dental services for patients of all ages.

Why Tooth Decay Occurs & the Importance of Preventive Care

Dental plaque is a sticky film that forms on your teeth and gums. If not regularly removed, plaque can harden into tartar and lead to tooth decay. Factors such as consuming sugary or acidic foods/beverages, experiencing dry mouth, teeth grinding, having receding gums, and deep grooves in dental enamel can also increase your risk of developing cavities. Our practice emphasizes the importance of prevention to maintain optimal oral health and encourage routine checkups for early detection of dental disease.

Assisting Patients with Maintaining Healthy Smiles

When you visit our office, we use advanced dental technology and techniques to evaluate your teeth, gums, and jaw for any signs of dental issues. In addition to checking your oral health, every visit includes a professional cleaning to remove plaque and tartar buildup. We'll also provide guidance on how to improve your oral care routine between appointments.
