Cavities are very dangerous dental problems that can attack your smile and harm your teeth. The good news is that if the cavity is caught at the early stages, you can reverse it. However, this is only the case if the cavity is still forming and if it’s not causing any pain. If you’re experiencing pain, you need to schedule an appointment for treatment.
Our dentist, Dr. Mehdi Vandi, is happy to help you reverse the early stages of a cavity by giving you the tips you need, which are:
– Let fluoride help: Fluoride is a very helpful mineral that can aid your teeth. In fact, it can strengthen the tooth enamel and help it fight the cavity and prevent decay down the road. The fluoride will send the cavity away. You can find fluoride in toothpaste, mouthwash, professional fluoride treatments, and tap water. It’s best to expose your teeth to fluoride as much as possible.
– Have a diligent oral hygiene routine: Keeping your mouth clean can keep cavity-causing bacteria away from your teeth. Oral hygiene can also slow the cavity-growing process if you use fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash. So, don’t forget to brush, floss, rinse, and attend your six-month checkups regularly.
