Make your smile a cavity-free smile by sending away harmful products that seek to destroy your teeth and gums. This includes products that are extremely acidic or feature copious amounts of sugar, which is a known ingredient of tooth decay and gum disease.

Cavities are small holes formed in teeth, often by dental erosion or oral accidents and injuries. If you have a cavity a dental filling must be used to prevent further damage from occurring. Cavity prevention relies on treating your teeth before a filling is considered necessary.

The best way to fight cavities is by keeping your teeth clear of debris. This can be accomplished by brushing and flossing daily as well as enjoying supplemental oral health cleaning habits such as mouthwash and chewing sugarless gum. Other tips include use brushes and toothpaste that has the ADA Seal of Acceptance, and eating a healthy diet that is low is foods that can damage your tooth enamel.
