When Good Teeth Go Bad

Posted on 9/23/2016 by Zac Bird
A woman brushing her teeth to prevent cavities.There is no part of the word cavity that people ever get excited about. It means an extra trip to our office, and a numb mouth for about a half day. Nevertheless it will happen to most people at least once or twice in their life.

Even if you manage to keep a great oral hygiene routine going it can be offset by the incredible amount of sugar that we, as Americans, consume per year.

That being said, it's certainly not a big deal when you do end up with a cavity.

Cavities aren't the End of the World

It could be a lot worse. With the amount of issues that can plague the mouth, a cavity is pretty low on the "things to worry about" list.

What is important, is that when you have a cavity you discuss with us about what the issues that caused it were and do your best to not repeat the past.

We are now able to see every part of the mouth in such detail that we can detect weak points in the tooth before they even become cavities. That is why it is so important that you not only practice great oral health at home, but you come in to see us at least twice a year for a regular cleaning and examination.

That way we can let you know about what is going on in your mouth and perhaps pre-emptively attack weak spots before they become cavities.

Commit to Oral Hygiene

Having a great oral hygiene routine is the most important part in fighting cavities. Cavities are cause by bacteria that are allowed to buildup in your mouth.

When those bacteria aren't washed away by regular brushing and flossing, they can start chipping away at your healthy teeth.

Please contact us if you have any questions about your oral hygiene.
