How to prevent dental cavities?

A cavity begins when bacteria consume sugar in the mouth producing an acidic byproduct, that demineralizes the enamel, the hardest structure of the tooth, leading to small holes. If not treated in time, it can cause pain, further infection, and possibly tooth loss. 

The best way to prevent tooth decay is to reduce the amount of sugar in your diet and practice good oral hygiene, such as brushing and flossing your teeth regularly. A regular visit to your dentist is important as they can detect cavities early and provide necessary recommendations for nutrition as well as treatments to prevent further damage.

During your biological dental cleaning, your holistic dentist can provide advice and guidance on how to improve your oral hygiene habits to prevent cavities by:

  1. Analyzing your oral microbiome
  2. Review how your nutrition affects your overall health and recommend necessary dietary changes to reduce your risk of cavities
  3. Help identify any underlying issues that may be causing an increase in cavities

Possible Treatment

The sooner the dentist can catch the problem, the less invasive the treatment will be. Possible treatment may include fillings, sealants, and/or ozone therapy.

Biological dental cleanings can help remove plaque, which can also contribute to decay, and tartar buildup from hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. With help of the ozone therapy after cleaning, patients can experience natural disinfection of the mouth, without harsh chemicals or toxins. Ozone therapy will also promote blood circulation, allowing the gum to start the healing process.

If you are prone to cavities, you may also want to consider changing your diet to include more whole foods and limiting snacks between meals. With proper care and regular dental check-ups, you can reduce your risk of cavities and maintain a healthy smile.
