The Ways To Preventing Cavities

  • Brush your teeth - brush your teeth properly at least twice a day with a toothpaste containing fluoride.
  • Floss daily - the best way to remove food debris from in between the teeth.
  • Eat healthy - eating nutritional snacks and limiting the amount of sugary drinks will help to prevent plaque from forming on the teeth.
  • Visit your dentist - many cavities can only be detected by a dentist or a dental x-ray. Visiting your dentist for regular check ups and cleanings are a key factor in preventing cavities and staying on top of good oral hygiene.
  • Use mouthrinse - rinsing with one of these mouth rinses after brushing or eating can aid in cavity prevention.
  • Chew gum (Sugarless)
