You may wonder if you’re on the road toward a smile that remains healthy or if you’re on track toward experiencing cavities in your future. Since it’s essential that you come in for a visit in order to receive a personalized response to your likelihood of experiencing tooth decay, we will start by offering up some universal truths regarding protecting teeth from decay. As for your unique questions, come in for a preventive care visit!
#1: Has Anyone Told You You’re Immune To Tooth Decay?
Have you ever visited a dentist who has told you that you’re completely immune to decay? If your answer is, “No” then you have the potential to form cavities.
#2: Do You Ever Miss A Brushing Session?
Do you ever accidentally go to sleep at night without brushing your teeth? Find yourself in such a morning rush that you decide you just don’t have time to brush? If so, you’re more prone to cavity development than you think! One missed session can increase your chance of tooth decay.
#3: Do You Floss Daily?
Not sure flossing is essential? It is. Tooth decay becomes more likely (it can happen between your teeth or beneath your gumline, too) when you avoid flossing.
#4: Do You Schedule Preventive Visits On Time, Every Time?
Do you see us every six months for your dental cleaning and your checkup? If not, you are certainly more prone to tooth decay! Why? Twice annual visits let us clear away the stuff that leads to decay (plaque and tartar) that you cannot remove all by yourself.
