To protect your teeth against tooth decay which is caused as a result of plaque, our dental care specialists have highlighted some of the important information you need to know below.
Tooth decay is caused by plaque which is caused by accumulation of sticky bacterium on the teeth. The bacterium over time may be able to penetrate the tooth enamel causing cavities, otherwise known as decay. Regular dental checkup and appointment may be instrumental in catching plaques early before it causes decay of the tooth.
In the event of cavities, this can lead to weakened teeth, cause pain and promote tooth loss when unattended to for an extended period of time. In certain cases, cavities may also create a widespread infection in the mouth.
Tooth decay has been revealed to be one of the commonest oral diseases affecting children in the United States in recent times, however, this can be prevented against through dental sealants, fluorides and daily care of the teeth.
To help you properly prevent against tooth decay both in kids and adults, our Green Meadow Dental care specialists recommend the combination of sealants and fluorides which can potentially irradiate tooth decay and disease in children.
To properly protect the teeth against decay and cavities, our dentists at Green Meadow Dental recommend:
- Regular intake of nutritious meals while paying attention to avoiding sugary foods and beverages
- Use of fluoride toothpaste and treatments
- Regular teeth cleanings and dental examinations
- Dental sealants
Taking proper care of the teeth from childhood (before the age of 14) can significantly improve the life and health of the teeth. In addition, this plays a significant role in helping children imbibe proper oral health habits which will protect their teeth well into adulthood.
At Green Meadow Dental, we provide dental care for children with the goal of preventing against dental diseases as it is more advisable to prevent against diseases than treat them.
