Cavity prevention can often be one of the most important tasks you can undertake in order to keep your smile safe. Because cavities arise due to holes in your tooth enamel, it can be the result of the food you eat, the choices you choose or genetic predispositions. In order to ensure your smile has the greatest chance of success, always implement an effective cavity prevention plan as soon as possible. Here are some steps you need to take:

– If you wish to effectively prevent cavities, you may need to lower your risks by eating less unhealthy substances such as sugars and carbs.
– Be sure to brush your teeth twice a day with non-abrasive toothpaste. Flossing once a day is also beneficial for removing plaque buildup and debris between your teeth.
– Visit your dentist for routine checkups and oral examinations to ensure that dental erosion is not occurring.
– Non-abrasive products such as mouthwash and chewing gum are helpful for cleaning out your mouth after eating.
– Stay away from sticky or chewy foods that can linger on your teeth and gums long after eating them.
