Do you know how to adequately protect your smile against the risk of cavities? In order to ensure your teeth are safe from the risks associated with cavities, it’s important to have a prevention plan in place to minimize risks that are commonly associated with them.

By actively taking care of your teeth and gums through effective oral hygiene routines, you can greatly lower your risk of cavities. Oftentimes, this consists of nothing more than brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once a day. For additional help with keeping your smile clean, rinse out your mouth after eating with nonabrasive tools including mouthwash.

If you are having issues with cavities or dental erosion, you may want to inspect your diet and eliminate any products that are putting you at an increased risk. If you are routinely consuming acidic products or sugars and starches, you may need to minimize the amount that you eat as they can be converted into acids that chew through your tooth enamel.
