Are your teeth aching? Does a particular spot in your mouth hurt when you bite down? If you said yes to either of these questions, you may have a cavity. The only way to know for sure is to visit your local dentist for a checkup. Tooth decay is certainly no joke. Nobody wants to experience the pain and haste associated with it. This is why it is important to take preventative measures before you start feeling the pain.
In this video, you will learn about some of these prevention methods.
The most obvious way to prevent cavities is dental cleaning. You should be brushing your teeth twice a day and also floss. If flossing is difficult because of little space in between your teeth, consider using a waterpik instead. Waterpiks in many cases are actually more effective than traditional floss. They can clean all the hard to reach places with ease. Additionally, the whole process is extremely fast. However, if you decide to use traditional floss, dentists recommend rinsing after flossing rather than before. This allows the fluoride from the toothpaste to remain on the teeth for a little longer.
