Cavity Prevention Facts and Dental Care Fundamentals

dca-blog_cavity-prevention-lollipop

When it comes to dental care, many people make the assumption that neglecting their brushing regimen will result in nothing more serious than a stern rebuke from their dentist. However, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, poor dental care can actually put individuals at greater risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, and lung ailments. Women who fail to maintain their teeth may run a higher risk of delivering low birth-weight babies. Cavities are one of the primary indicators of poor dental health, so everyone needs to become familiar with cavity prevention techniques and regularly visit their family dentistry experts.

A cavity is a hole in a tooth that is created when food particles in the mouth are converted into acid. The acid and the bacteria in the mouth together create plaque, which causes the onset of tooth decay. Once tooth enamel has been eroded by acid, a cavity is likely to occur.

A small cavity typically requires a simple filling. However, if a cavity is large, your dentist in Tampa may need to put a crown on the tooth. If the pulp has tooth decay that has caused an infection, you may require a root canal.

Innovative dental care treatments are being researched that may eventually reduce the impact of cavities and tooth decay. A fluorescent light tool is being tested that can discover tooth decay before it turns into a cavity. Then, a sealant or fluoride supplement can be applied to the decayed tooth to prevent spreading and help in cavity prevention. A filling is being developed that will release fluoride around the decaying tooth to keep it from harming adjacent teeth.

The best way to avoid tooth decay, however, is to always practice good dental care and cavity prevention techniques. Brushing twice a day and flossing at least once a day, along with routine visits to an affordable dentist in Tampa, are paramount to preventing tooth decay. And choosing nutritious foods and avoiding excessive amounts of cavity-causing sweets and carbs play a big part in cavity prevention.
