Preventing Tooth Decay In AZ

Preventing Tooth Decay in AZ In AZ, tooth decay is one of the most common childhood problems, yet tooth decay also affects adults. Yuma Family Dentist serves people from 35 to 90 years old to help fight tooth decay.

Bacteria is a common cause of tooth decay. Bacteria live in your mouth and combine with plaque and acids to break down the enamel coating on your teeth. The breakdown of your tooth enamel can often result in 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 frequently throughout the day, tooth decay can result. Foods to avoid include soda and sugary chewing gum; these foods tend to stay around for a while and create an environment where bacteria thrive.

To help prevent tooth decay, 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 local Yuma dentist in AZ for regular check-ups and cleanings will help prevent tooth decay.
