Tooth decay takes place when bacteria damages the outer surface of the tooth. The following factors will increase your risk of tooth decay:
- Poor Oral Hygiene
- Eating & Drinking Too much Sugar.
- Not Seeing The Dentist On A Regular Basis.
If you feel you have a cavity or cavities contact your Dentist. If a cavity goes untreated it can lead to tooth loss and possible infections of the mouth.
The best way to prevent tooth decay is to practice daily oral hygiene with brushing & flossing. It’s also best to limit your intake of snacks and eat balanced nutritional meals. Keeping your mouth healthy can help sustain your overall health. The ADA recommends you visit a Dentist twice a year for cleanings and regular oral exams.
