Maintaining strong teeth and a healthy mouth is an important aspect in preserving a high quality of life. The process of preventing tooth decay and gum disease problems starts with a consistent daily oral hygiene routine that involves brushing your teeth each morning and night with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
Remembering to floss between each of your teeth and along the gumline once per day, further helps to remove food particles and plaque from your mouth. With consistency these measures will greatly reduce your chances of suffering oral health problems.
Sometimes minor inconsistencies in your oral hygiene routine can lead to a gradual build up of oral plaque acids. Over time, this acidic environment can start to demineralize your tooth enamel increasing your chances of suffering from cavities and tooth sensitivity.
If our dentist finds a problem with the mineral density of your tooth enamel, he might recommend administering a fluoride treatment and a prescription for simple fluoride supplements. These measures can help bolster the mineral strength of your teeth to help prevent cavities in between your regularly scheduled dental checkups.
