Did you know that a cavity is what is left after tooth decay is removed? Or that the incidence of tooth decay is second only to the common cold? Decay is the most important cause of tooth loss in younger people. Periodontal (gum) disease is a leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Both are caused by the presence of bacteria.
Thanks to preventative, minimally invasive dentistry, we can help you to control bacteria and preserve your oral health with some back-to-basics advice…
- Brush, floss, and rise.
- Stay away from sugary foods.
- Get regular checkups for your whole family to curtail decay, gum disease, and correct overcrowding or gaps that can cause problems.
Remember, the true foundation of even the most glamorous Hollywood smile is a healthy mouth!
