We all love to eat, but how do we protect our teeth for life long is the troublesome part.Teeth are an integral part of our body which serve dual purpose of appearance and chewing function. Our first impression on anyone we meet enhances if we greet them with a welcoming smile.
Whenever we eat, some amount of food gets stick to our teeth. If left unclean, Bacteria present in mouth decomposes this food and produces acid that destroys the tooth’s enamel and dentin.
We can prevent cavities by:
Brushing and flossing daily.
Avoid eating sugary or starchy food often.
Use of fluoride toothpaste, which strengthens teeth.
Using antibacterial mouthwash to reduce bacteria that cause cavities.
Visiting dentist every 6 months for routine check-up.
