There are ways to avoid these unpleasant dental appointments and the sound of the scary drill inside your mouth. Here are six simple tips to prevent the development of decay in your teeth!

Tip No 1

Since decay is generated, mainly due to the lack of comprehensive and proper oral care, it is very easy to conclude that in order to prevent it, brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash is of prominent importance.

Tip No 2

Sometimes, some changes in our eating habits are also required. For example, to reduce the consumption of sugars and acids. Where do we meet them? Sweets, soft drinks, and alcohol primarily, but generally small amounts of sugars and acids can be found in almost all foods, fruits, and drinks (for this reason, at least rinsing the mouth after each meal is necessary ).

Tip No 3

Fluoride is a compound that reduces the chances of being attacked by decay. Be sure to buy toothpaste or a mouthwash that contains fluoride. If the frequency at which your teeth are affected by decay is increased, you can ask your dentist if you are in need of additional fluoridation.

Tip No 4

Ask your dentist if you need to do preventive fillings(sealants). During that process, your dentist will apply a paste of synthetic material onto the occlusal surface of the back teeth (molars), which protects the teeth against decay.

Tip No 5

Drink fluoridated water. You can get fluoride tablets from the pharmacy (apoflux) and on the instructions of your dentist for quantity.

Tip No 6

Visit your dentist regularly for cleaning and dental check.
