Tooth Decay – How can I avoid?

Tooth Decay Bromley
Everyone wants to keep their teeth for their lifetime, however tooth decay is an ongoing problem which can eventually lead to tooth loss if left untreated.

The best way to protect your teeth from cavities is to know how decay begins, so here’s a short guide to avoiding the pain of tooth decay.

Dentist Croydon

Plaque Is The Problem

Plaque forms when food becomes trapped in the teeth and bacteria begins to grow. The acid plaque produces eats away at the teeth, removing the enamel’s mineral content to break through the protective, hard layer. This leaves holes in your tooth enamel, and when these remain untreated eventually the dentin will wear away too. Even worse, the decay can move more deeply into the tooth pulp, causing bacterial infections and pain,

Spotting A Cavity

Many people don’t realise they have a cavity in its early stages. Eventually, if allowed to worsen, however, the decay may cause the tooth to feel sensitive when drinking or eat hot, cold or sweet foods. There may be a white, black or brown stain on your tooth’s surface or even a hole in your tooth. These are all signs that tooth decay is setting in.

Am I At Risk Of Tooth Decay?

Everyone with teeth is at risk of developing tooth decay if they don’t care properly for their oral hygiene. Some people, however, have a greater risk than others. These include:

  • Smokers
  • People with diabetes
  • People who eat a lot of sugary or high carb foods
  • People who don’t floss or brush their teeth properly or regularly
  • Have a dry mouth

What Happens If I Develop Tooth Decay?

Tooth decay will lead to cavities and, eventually if left untreated, to tooth loss. However, as long as you seek treatment at an early enough stage, the damage can be repaired. A filling will restore your tooth’s appearance, strength and function so you can continue to eat and smile as normal. However, if you fail to seek out treatment, you will eventually experience pain and you could end up losing your tooth.

Top Tips For Tooth Decay Prevention

The best cure for tooth decay is prevention of the problem in the first place. With that in mind, here are our top tips to help you avoid tooth decay:

  • Brush your teeth thoroughly and floss at least twice per day
  • Rinse out your mouth regularly
  • Chew a sugar-free gum
  • Avoid snacking between meals
  • Avoid drinking sugary drinks
  • Visit your dentist regularly
  • Make regularly hygienist appointments

Follow our expert tips and your teeth will stay in good health, preserving your smile for life.

Make your appointment today with one of our Hayes Dental Surgery’s friendly and professional award-winning  dentists, and arrange a check-up. With our help, your teeth will stay strong, healthy and cavity-free.

Effective cavity protection can be yours with dental sealants. See why these tooth sealants are in such high demand dentist croydon

Seal Out Cavities with Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are thin, plastic or resin coatings that are applied to molars and premolars to prevent bacteria from getting trapped in the teeth and causing cavities. These tooth sealants are applied over the grooves and nooks of the chewing surfaces of teeth, which tend to trap decay particles and are difficult to reach with a toothbrush. While family dentist croydon specialists usually recommend tooth sealants to kids and teens between the ages of four and 15, more and more adults at high risk for cavities are also enjoying the protection of dental sealants today.

The Fast and Painless Procedure

Dental sealants are one of the quickest and easiest treatments available at family dentistry clinics. An affordable dentist croydon can perform the entire procedure in less than 10 minutes with no discomfort or anesthesia. The procedure consists of the following simple steps:

  1. The teeth receiving treatment are thoroughly cleaned and dried.
  2. Your family dentistry specialist applies a special solution to prepare teeth to bond to the tooth sealants. This gets rinsed away after 60 seconds.
  3. A very thin layer of the plastic or resin sealant is brushed onto the teeth.
  4. A special curing light is shined on the teeth for one minute to harden the sealant.
  5. Then teeth are protected from cavities.

Good Care Leads to Long Wear Dentist Croydon

With dental sealants, a few minutes of treatment result in years of cavity protection. In fact, tooth sealants can last 10 years or more with proper oral hygiene and regular professional check-ups and cleanings. If dental sealants get chipped or cracked, an affordable dentist croydon can quickly reapply the sealant to maintain its protection.
