I think I do everything I should to keep my teeth healthy, so why do I still get cavities?
Many factors come into play when trying to prevent cavities. Genetics, diet, oral hygiene, and even medications all contribute to the state of your dental health.
Sometimes people are more genetically predisposed to cavities or have thin enamel. Other times, habits can create more cavities.
For instance, you know that sweets are bad for your teeth. But you may not know that the longer sugar remains in your mouth, the more opportunity it has to damage your teeth. In this case, you could make a better choice by choosing sugar-free candies.
As you know, another source of cavities is improper oral hygiene. You may think this doesn’t apply to you because you brush and floss diligently. But if you’re not doing it properly, you aren’t getting the most out of your efforts. When you visit Whitetree Dental, we will be happy to re-introduce you to good oral hygiene practices to ensure that your teeth remain healthy.
