How can I prevent cavities?

Cavities and other dental problems can always be prevented through proper oral hygiene, which includes daily brushing and flossing, regular fluoride treatments, and keeping up with routine visits to our office. Brushing and flossing every day are essential in fighting cavities because these simple daily steps remove plaque and bacteria from the teeth, which are the main cause of cavities. Fluoride also protects your teeth from decay and cavities. When you visit our dental office every six months, we will make sure that your smile is healthy and free from decay. We are always happy to offer instructions on how to better maintain your oral hygiene and overall health.
