Your teeth may be decaying right now without you knowing it. Did you know that most people don’t feel a cavity developing? Most people only feel a cavity once it gets to a rather large size. Tooth decay could be silently creeping up on you. However, there are some things you can do to prevent tooth decay. In this video, you will learn what you need to do to prevent tooth decay.
Cavities are also known as dental decay or even dental caries. It occurs when bacteria in your mouth produce acid. This acid will then wear away at your teeth as time progresses. Without proper oral hygiene, this process can go on for weeks or months. This is plenty of time for a cavity to develop. This is also why seeing a general dentist is important. They will be able to locate these cavities early on before they grow too large. They can also fill cavities when they are small. However, if they get too large, the whole tooth may have to be removed. Don’t let it get this far, make to brush your teeth regularly and floss as well.
