Avoiding Dental Health Troubles Through Smart Daily Care
Posted July 30, 2018 by Wager-Evans Dental
Your Reno, NV dentist’s office can help your smile by providing restorative and preventive dental care that keeps you in good health. In between visits, you should be doing your part to protect your smile. Tooth decay can do permanent damage to your tooth, cause an infection, and – if nothing is done in time – even make an extraction necessary. When you consider how harmful a cavity can be, it becomes easy to see why an effective approach to daily dental care is so important. Consistently brushing and flossing will help, but you should think about oral care as more than just a matter of cleaning your teeth. Your diet choices, and your habits, can also have an impact on your dental health.
Protecting your smile against tooth decay and gum disease requires effective efforts put towards keeping your smile clean. If you fail to brush and floss properly, you can leave yourself at risk for issues without realizing it. Brushing at least twice a day is important, but it is also important to perform this action thoroughly. You also need to see to it that you floss every day, and that you move your floss string vertically to clean your teeth at the gum line.
Products that have more sugar, or are more acidic, can be trouble for teeth. Oral bacteria can feed on sugars, leading to the release of acids that cause enamel erosion. Acidic products soften your enamel, making teeth easier to damage. Soft drinks are particularly worrying to dentists because they can be high in sugar, while also being acidic.
