Do you want to reverse the early stages of a cavity? If so, our dentist, Dr. James Shaheen, has the tips you need. Now, these tips can only help the early stages of a cavity. It can’t help a cavity that is causing tooth pain. If you’re suffering toothaches, it’s best to schedule an appointment for treatment. Some ways you can reverse a cavity at the early stages include:
– Strengthen your teeth with fluoride: Fluoride is a natural mineral that can nourish your tooth enamel and give it the ability to fight the decay. This can send the cavity on the road. This mineral can be found in many products and treatments, like mouthwash, toothpaste, tap water, and in-office fluoride treatments. It’s best to expose your teeth to fluoride by using, drinking, and receiving these things regularly.
– Have a diligent oral hygiene routine: This is important because keeping your mouth clean can keep cavity-causing bacteria away from your chompers. Oral hygiene can also slow the cavity-growing process if you use fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash. So, don’t forget to brush twice a day, floss and rinse once a day, and attend your six-month checkups regularly.
