3 Reasons You Keep Getting Cavities

frustratedwomanAre you feeling more and more frustrated because you show up to our practice for a dental checkup thinking all is well, but you discover you are suffering from tooth decay … again? If so, don’t worry. You are not simply cursed with bad teeth. In general, there’s something you’re doing (or not doing) on a daily basis that is contributing to the formation of cavities. Fortunately, we can help you identify the problem and fix it.

Reason #1: You’re Doing An Okay Job With Hygiene

Patients commonly overlook the fact that an “okay” job with dental hygiene will not protect them from tooth decay. Only an excellent, dedicated attempt will work because you need to physically remove as much plaque from your teeth as possible every day. Become more focused for improved oral health.

Reason #2: You’re Suffering From Dry Mouth

Are you congested or taking medicine that might cause dry mouth? Unfortunately, regardless of the cause, dry mouth can promote tooth decay. This occurs because the saliva flow that is usually present to consistently wash away bacteria is absent, giving bacteria a chance to multiply and harm your teeth. Schedule a visit, so we may assist you.

Reason #3: Your Smile Doesn’t Get A Break

Do you enjoy snacking all day long? Perhaps you enjoy nursing a sweet coffee drink throughout the morning and another in the afternoon. While this is certainly a pleasure, it can wreak havoc on your teeth. To avoid tooth decay, we suggest snacking for isolated times, so your teeth are not exposed to a lengthy acid attack. Remember to rinse your smile with water after you indulge. Then – if you can – brush!
