5 Truths About Cavities

Cavities are not child’s play! Here are 5 truths about cavities you should know 🙂

  1. Tooth decay can be caused by exposure to acidic foods
    Acids in the foods you eat and drink can cause your tooth enamel to wear away, weakening your teeth and ultimately lead to tooth decay.
  2. Cavities happen without the presence of pain
    The truth is if you have pain it is because you have advanced damage affecting your nerve. Visit with your dentist every 6 months in order to maintain oral health and identify mild tooth decay before it gets worse leading to pain and more intensive treatment plans.
  3. Sensitive teeth is not always a sign of decay
    If you have sensitive teeth it could be a sign of decay, but that is not always the case. You could have hypersensitive teeth or various other causes which lead to sensitivity.
  4. Small spaces and gaps in your teeth encourage cavities
    Smaller gaps in your teeth are harder to clean and therefore are more susceptible to tooth decay.
  5. Oral hygiene is the best way to prevent cavities
    That’s right, brushing and flossing is the best way to prevent cavities! Brush at least twice a day with a fluoridated toothpaste to help prevent cavities.

If you have any concerns about your oral health, make a visit with your dentist right away. To discuss any of your dental concerns or questions, email us at info@lifestyledental.co.uk , or call us on 01772 717316.
