Did you know that frequent consumption of sweet food and beverages increases your risk for developing tooth decay? When you eat or drink foods that contain sugars, the bacteria in plaque feed off this sugar to produce acids that damage the enamel over time, leading to a decayed tooth. So the more sugar you consume, the more acids the bacteria can produce! The good news is that tooth decay is highly preventable – proper oral health care and the help of your dedicated Liverpool dentist can help ensure you a lifetime of happy, healthy smiles.
Good oral hygiene calls for regular brushing and flossing – those are the cornerstone of an effective at-home regimen. It’s also a good idea to eat nutritious foods and to limit snacking whenever possible. Periodic dental checkups and professional cleanings at your Liverpool dentist office are critical too since, even with regular brushing and flossing, dental plaque can still accumulate in hard-to-reach places. During a professional teeth cleaning, we thoroughly remove plaque buildup from the most difficult to reach areas between the teeth and gums as well as guide you on techniques you can use at home to improve your oral hygiene regimen. While you’re here, the dedicated professionals at your trusted Liverpool dentist office can help you get a better understanding of the prevention of dental decay, so that you can stay cavity-free. We can even provide detailed nutritional guidance to help you make wise food choices to support your dental health and overall well-being.
