Are You Watching For Cavities?

prevent cavities Florissant

Tooth decay is one of the most common health problems there is. Are you doing everything you can to prevent it? In this post from Koch Park Dental in Florissant MO we have some practical ideas that can help.

  • Avoid Refined Sugar: This one is probably obvious, but avoiding sugar should be your number one strategy to prevent cavities. Sugar and starch forms plaque, that sticky film that can coat the teeth. The acids in plaque start the process that forms cavities.
  • Look For Gum With Xylitol: Xylitol is a type of sugar alcohol that occurs naturally in some plants. It is not the same kind of alcohol that makes people drunk, so it’s okay for anyone who is avoiding that type of alcohol. It is popular as a sweetener and can actually be good for dental health.
  • Brush and Floss Regularly: Daily brushing and flossing is still your best bet for preventing cavities. It cleans off the plaque that leads to cavities, and also helps to prevent gum disease.

Along with brushing, regular checkups at Koch Park Dental in Florissant MO help you maintain good dental health. People from Chesterfield, Maryland Heights, and St. Charles come to our practice for general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
