Treating your smile properly includes making sure that you receive oral health care treatments designed to eliminate and eradicate cavities. A cavity forms when a hole in your tooth enamel is present due to a failure to eliminate plaque and other debris that can eat through your enamel. If enamel erosion is allowed to occur to the point that a cavity has formed, it can leave the inner workings of your tooth vulnerable, as bacteria can enter into the tooth’s root and lead to disease and infection.
To help lower the risks of cavities, always make sure your mouth is free of plaque buildup. Plaque is a substance that consists of bacteria and debris that can collect after eating large meals. To ensure your teeth and gums remain clean, always practice effective plaque prevention plans when needed. Furthermore, improve your oral hygiene by brushing and flossing daily and visiting our dentist for routine checkups. If you should have any other questions about cavities or plaque, our team can help you. Don’t forget to apply oral health care practices to your diet, including avoiding any products that can lead to dental erosion or tooth decay.
