Preventing Tooth Decay

Preventing Tooth Decay in Indiana

Tooth decay remains the most important issue in dental health, and it affects people of all ages. At Create A Smile in Bloomington IN, we are committed to preventing tooth decay in our patients.

It can be an uphill battle sometimes. Tooth decay is caused by bacteria. It merges with plaque and acids to break down the enamel on your teeth. The tiny holes that can result are what we call cavities.

The Sugar Factor

Tooth decay is usually a result of diet and oral hygiene choices. When sticky or sugary foods are consumed and allowed to remain on the teeth, it can result in tooth decay.

To help prevent it, limit sugary and starchy foods between meals. A good oral hygiene strategy is advised, and that means brushing twice a day and flossing at least once.

At Create A Smile in Bloomington IN, we are committed to the dental health of each patient. Services include complete general dentistry. Patients from Spencer, Ellettsville, and Bedford also come to us for cosmetic dentistry, and much more. Request an appointment today!
