Are You At A High Risk For Cavities? Part One

Share this:

MINT HILL, NC – Understanding whether you are prone to developing cavities will help you find the means to lower your risk. Cavity prevention will not only save you many dental visits but will save you money down the road. In this two-part article, we will dive into some risk factors and ways to address it. Below are some reasons why you may develop more cavities:

  • Frequent Drinking and Snacking Throughout Day: This will constantly introduce your teeth to an acidic environment. The bacteria in the mouth breaks down what you consume and releases an acidic byproduct. Imagine soaking your teeth in acid all day!
  • Dry Mouth and Multiple Medications: The absence of saliva makes it challenging for the mouth to return to a normal pH level from an acidic atmosphere and the ability to rinse away the particles in your mouth suffers.
  • White Spots on Teeth: These spots are weakened enamel and can be broken down easily.
  • Oral Hygiene: Make sure to brush at least twice per day, floss once per day, and use an anticavity mouth rinse to lower your risk of decay.
