Tooth Decay

Tooth Decay
When you eat, bits of food cling to your teeth and can help form plaque, a sticky film that builds up on tooth surfaces. Plaque is made of bacteria and it produces acid from the food you eat. If that acid attacks your teeth repeatedly, it can eat away at them and cause tooth decay. If decay is untreated you can develop an infection, which may lead to root canal or may need to have the tooth pulled.
Suggestions to avoid decay from our Dentist:
– Thoroughly rinse your mouth after eating any type of food.
– Brushing and flossing your teeth after each meal would be helpful.
– Limit your acidic beverages or any carbonated drinks, like sodas, citric juices(excessive sugar added), etc.
– Consider sealant and fluoride treatment.
