Childrens Dentist Newport Beach Discusses Tooth Decay

Adults, teens, and especially children may have difficulties with tooth decay or cavities. Tooth decay occurs when plaque (bacteria) appears on your teeth and begins to stick on the enamel of the tooth (outer film). Foods that are high in sugars/starches form bacteria perpetrating the enamel of your teeth. If the plaque remains on the tooth, the enamel will be penetrated and will cause a cavity.

Image Dental outlines step you can take to avoid tooth decay/cavities.

• Brushing teeth by using ADA approved toothpaste
• Flossing after every meal.
• Maintaining a diet that is healthy and low in sugars.
• Asking your dentist questions about the best preventive methods.
• Schedule regular comprehensive cleanings and x rays with your dentist.
