Tooth decay occurs when bacteria invade your tooth enamel and wear down the structures of your teeth, creating cavities. Your teeth are exposed to harmful bacteria every day. Fortunately, there are things you can do to prevent them from hurting your smile. Dr. Louis Migliazzo and our dental team at Louis Migliazzo, DDS have just the right tips to help you attain your oral health goals.
The first thing you can do is dedicate yourself to your oral hygiene routine. We recommend this because oral hygiene techniques can remove harmful plaque from your teeth that cause cavities. Remember to clean your smile by brushing twice a day and flossing and rinsing daily.
You’ll also want to attend your six-month dental checkups at our office. This will provide a treatment that can effectively remove the cavity-causing plaque in the hidden crevices of your teeth.
You can also eat foods that are healthy for your teeth. This means eating raw vegetables, fruits, and dairy products regularly as well as avoiding sugar. You’ll also want to limit snacking throughout the day and drink plenty of water.
