Building a better smile includes always taking the time to enhance your oral health through any means necessary. One of the key risk factors for poor oral health or failing health is the result of holes in your tooth enamel known as cavities. To help effectively treat cavities, dental fillings must be used. However, cavity prevention is key if you wish to continue to avoid cavities for the rest of your life.

The best smiles are born out of effective dietary choices. If you are making poor choices with your diet, your teeth will not be able to thrive as intended. Thus, it is important to always make sure you’re taking the necessary steps to enhance your oral health whenever possible through your dietary selections. If you need additional help with this, speak with your dentist about products or foods to avoid.

Your oral health care is also essential for cavity prevention. If you are at risk for cavities, it is often because plaque buildup has occurred in your mouth and is contributing to dental erosion. To keep your mouth clean, always make sure you’re cleaning your teeth and gums on a daily basis. Furthermore, make sure to brush your tongue scraper. To prevent abrasion, use brushes with soft bristles and non-abrasive toothpaste.
