Do you want to keep cavities at bay? If so, our dentist, Dr. Chad Gubler, is happy to hear that. Tooth decay is a serious and dangerous dental issue that should be avoided at all costs. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to reduce your chances of falling victim to cavities. Those things are:

-Brush twice a day (It’s best to brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste)

-Floss once a day (It’s best to remove the cavity-causing substances from your smile by cleaning between the teeth and along the gumline)

-Rinse daily (Use fluoride mouthwash as you rinse)

-Visit your dentist every six months (This is very important because the treatments provided remove cavity-causing bacteria from your mouth and even strengthen your tooth enamel)

-Use fluoride (Fluoride is a natural mineral that seeps into the enamel and strengthens it, helping it keep cavities away)

-Avoid acidic foods and beverages (Acid makes your teeth vulnerable to cavities by wearing it down and weakening it)

-Eat tooth-healthy foods (Some foods that can help strengthen and clean your teeth include cheese, yogurt, carrots, and apples)
