In Utah and around the country, tooth decay is one of the most pervasive childhood troubles, yet tooth decay also affects adults. Pro Systems Dentistry serves people from 8 to 80 years old to help fight tooth decay.
Blame it on Bacteria
Bacteria is the cause of tooth decay. Bacteria live in your mouth and merge with plaque and acids to damage the enamel coating on your teeth. The breakdown of your tooth enamel can often bring about the development of small holes in your teeth which are known as cavities.
Tooth decay is typically a result of diet and oral hygiene choices. When sticky foods are consumed and allowed to sit on the teeth, or foods full of sugars and starches are consumed throughout the day, cavities can develop. Foods to forgo include soda and sugary chewing gum; these foods tend to create an environment where bacteria prosper.
To help prevent cavities, simply limit sugary and starchy foods between meals. Also, brushing at least twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, flossing at least once a day, and visiting your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings will help prohibit tooth decay.
