Nobody likes going to the dentist, especially when it is to fill a cavity. There are several things you can do to prevent tooth decay. In this video, you will learn a few of these methods.
First, you need to make sure to brush regularly. It is recommended that you brush twice a day.
However, simply brushing your teeth is not enough. You also need to floss to remove the plaque between your teeth that brushing does not reach. This is important to prevent tooth decay and gingivitis. String floss work just fine for this. However, water picks are another excellent way to remove this plaque. In fact, some studies have shown that water picks are 50% more effective than string floss.
If you do not brush and floss, tooth decay and gingivitis are almost guaranteed. However, if you are already at this stage, it is not too late. Laser dentistry is an excellent option to remove bacteria and fill your cavities. It is generally more comfortable than traditional drilling. However, it is still better to brush and floss in the first place to avoid the hassle.
