Fighting Cavities

Posted .

What’s the main point of having a great oral health routine? It’s to keep your teeth in the best shape possible – and to eliminate, as much as possible, the probability of developing cavities in your teeth.

However, fighting cavities isn’t easy and we all can use a refresher course from time to time. So let’s see what the team here at Oxford Lakes Dental Care in Oxford, Michigan, recommends you do to remember how to properly fight cavities and keep your oral health in tip-top shape.

Think of the long term

While you may think that getting a cavity filled – if you get one – is a fix to the problem, that’s not always the case. Waiting too long to fill a cavity can create a large one, which may result in you losing the tooth. You definitely don’t want to lose your teeth – keeping them is ideal!

Remember your floss

How often do you floss? If you’re like the majority of American adults, the answer is likely not often enough. While it’s sad to say, only four in ten American adults floss on a regular basis. Flossing is one of the best things you can do to remove plaque and debris from your teeth, especially those hard-to-reach areas of your mouth where your brush can’t quite reach.
