Safeguarding Your Smile: Preventing Tooth Decay

April 30, 2024

Did you know that according to the World Health Organization, 60-90% of children worldwide, and nearly 100% of adults have dental cavities? While these statistics may seem daunting, maintaining optimal oral health is easier than you think with proper care. At the office of Stunning Smiles, we offer a comprehensive selection of preventive and dental services to help patients of all ages protect their teeth from decay.

The Causes of Tooth Decay and the Importance of Preventative Care

Tooth decay occurs when dental plaque is not consistently removed from around the teeth and gums. Factors that increase your risk for tooth decay include a diet high in sugary sweets, acidic foods, and beverages; dry mouth; teeth grinding; receding gums; and deeply grooved dental enamel. As experienced providers of care, we emphasize the importance of dental prevention as the best way to maintain optimal oral health.

We also encourage routine checkups to allow for the early detection and treatment of dental disease. While cavities are almost entirely preventable, it's essential to treat any developing tooth decay early in its onset. In this way, further damage and more severe consequences to your oral health and overall well-being can be avoided.

When you visit our office for a checkup, you can rest assured that your smile is in the best of hands.
