4 Effective Tips to Prevent Dental Caries2 min read
If you really care about having good oral health, then I have four powerful tips to prevent this nasty dental caries. Caries has been a threat for mankind for decades, and it’s a growing epidemic. Caries is said to be one of the most common diseases ever know to humankind.
It’s vital to have a good oral health and prevent tooth decay from an early age because it may cause difficulties later in everyday life. Also by preventing teeth caries you also improve your teeth quality and get a much whiter and brighter smile. For defeating the nasty caries we must first know what causes it.
Dental caries is caused by a bacterium named streptococcus mutans that produces acid in the mouth. Because the bacteria eat sugars to multiply, the simplest way to prevent dental caries taking place is by decreasing simple sugars in your diet. When removing sugary foods (white bread, sweeties and fruits) from your diet you starve the bacteria. The great part is that you can greatly prevent and even completely remove caries just by following four simple tips…
#1. Brush your teeth at least twice a day. I recommend brushing with Crest 3D White Vivid Fluoride toothpaste because of their active ingredient, fluoride, which greatly prevents caries. Brush your teeth with Crest 3D every morning and at night before bed.
#2. Floss your teeth daily and after sugary meals. Make sure you remove all plaque between your gums and tongue.
#3. Decrease sugar in your diet. Caries is found where sugar is found, so if you are greatly looking for removing caries one time for all, decrease your intake of white sugar, sugary liquid and honey. Also try to minimize your intake of fruits, especially bananas, because of their high simple sugary volume.
#4. Improve your oral hygiene by visiting your dentist twice a year and ask for a full oral check. Dentist can also help you spot early caries outbreaks and prescribe medicines if necessary.
Please remember that once a tooth structure is fully destroyed by dental caries it can never be fully repaired, so try your best to brush and floss at least twice a day and floss after sugary meals. Also decreasing sugary foods like sodas, snacks and sweeties will greatly help on your oral health and the last you can do for your oral health is by visiting your dentist twice a year.
