In New Jersey and around the country, tooth decay is one of the most pervasive childhood problems, yet tooth decay also affects adults. Rotem Dental Care serves people from 35 to 95 years old to help fight tooth decay.
Blame it on Bacteria
Bacteria is the cause of tooth decay. Bacteria live in your mouth and commingle with plaque and acids to erode the enamel coating on your teeth. The breakdown of your tooth enamel can often lead to the development of small holes in your teeth which are known as cavities.
Tooth decay is typically a result of diet and oral hygiene choices. When sticky foods are consumed and allowed to sit on the teeth, or foods full of sugars and starches are consumed throughout the day, cavities can appear. Foods to forgo include soda and sugary chewing gum; these foods tend to create an environment where bacteria flourish.
To help prevent tooth decay, simply limit sugary and starchy foods between meals. Also, brushing at least twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, flossing at least once a day, and visiting your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings will help prohibit tooth decay.
