Teeth decay

Leading causes of teeth decay

Erosion
Acidic substances erode tooth enamel, making teeth more susceptible to decay.
Poor brushing
Inadequate brushing, flossing, and check-ups allow plaque and tartar buildup, leading to tooth decay and gum disease.
Hereditary diseases
Tooth structure and genetic factors can influence susceptibility to decay and the strength of tooth enamel.
Infrequent dental checkups
We recommend a dental check-up once every 6 months.
Poor diet
Regular consumption of sugary and acidic foods creates an environment conducive to tooth decay.
Dry mouth (Xerostomia)
Reduced saliva production leads to a lack of protective saliva, increasing the risk of tooth decay.
FAQs

Frequently asked questions

How often should I visit the dentist for check-ups and cleanings?

It is recommended to visit the dentist every six months for routine check-ups and professional cleanings. However, the frequency may vary based on your individual oral health needs, as advised by your dentist.

What can I do to maintain good oral hygiene at home?

Maintaining good oral hygiene involves brushing your teeth at least twice a day, using fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, and incorporating mouthwash into your routine. It’s also important to follow a balanced diet and limit sugary and acidic foods and drinks.

What are the signs of gum disease, and how can it be treated?

Common signs of gum disease include red, swollen, or bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, receding gums, and loose teeth. Treatment options range from professional deep cleanings (scaling and root planing) to more advanced procedures depending on the severity of the disease.

What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment?

Orthodontic treatment, such as braces or clear aligners, can correct misaligned teeth, improve bite alignment, enhance oral health, and boost self-confidence by creating a straighter and more harmonious smile.

What are dental implants, and are they suitable for me?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to replace missing teeth. They offer a stable, long-lasting solution for tooth loss. To determine if dental implants are suitable for you, a comprehensive evaluation by a dentist is necessary to assess your oral health, bone density, and other factors.

What options are available for teeth whitening?

Our dental clinic offers both in-office and at-home teeth whitening options. In-office treatments provide quick and dramatic results, while at-home kits allow for more gradual whitening under professional guidance.

What can I do to prevent cavities in children?

To prevent cavities in children, encourage regular brushing with fluoride toothpaste, limit sugary snacks and drinks, promote a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables, and ensure they visit the dentist for routine check-ups and dental sealants if recommended.

Are there any alternatives to braces?

Yes, there are alternatives to braces for certain cases. Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, can gradually shift teeth into alignment without the use of traditional braces. Schedule a consultation to determine the best option for your specific needs.
