None of us like visiting the dentist. We certainly don’t want to visit the dentist to have a cavity filled. Cavities can be painful and leave a rotting tooth if untreated. However, the best practice is to avoid cavities in the first place. This is why dental care is so important. In this video, you will learn how to prevent tooth decay.
The best way to prevent tooth decay by far is to brush your teeth twice a day. This prevents plaque from building up on your teeth. It also removes any left over food debris that may be wedged between your teeth. Further, make sure to floss at least once a day as well. This will be especially helpful for removing food particulates.
After brushing your teeth, you may also want to use a fluoride rinse. Fluoride rinses are useful for keeping your teeth healthy and avoiding cavities. The reason you want to use fluoride at night is because it has much more time to sit on your teeth and protect them.
As you can see, there are several different ways to prevent cavities. All it requires is a few extra minutes each day. You will be thankful when you don’t have to make that extra trip to the dentist to have a cavity filled.
