Causes of cavities

Bacteria:

Streptococcus mutans bacteria ferment sugars and starches in food into lactic acid.

Therefore, if you do not clean your teeth after eating, 15 minutes later, the sugar and starch in your mouth will be turned into acid. Acid will seep into the cracks and depressions on the tooth surface, destroying tooth enamel and forming cavities .

Food:

Food, especially sweets, is an important basis for bacteria to cling to and multiply. Food particles stuck between teeth if you do not brush your teeth regularly or do not have your teeth cleaned periodically will create a favorable environment for the bacteria that cause cavities to grow.

Structure of teeth:

The ability of teeth to resist decay depends on the structural state of the tooth. Strong teeth, no defects, no chips, shiny white tooth enamel, high tooth mineralization level,... are factors that fight against the agents that cause cavities.

On the contrary, if these elements are not complete, the risk of cavities is very high.

Teeth care:

Teeth need to be cleaned regularly, especially after eating and drinking. If done irregularly, it will create a favorable environment for bacteria to grow and can cause serious complications.

Not only that, improper brushing can also damage the gums, creating conditions for bacteria to cause gingivitis.

Simple and effective way to prevent cavities

1. Brush your teeth properly

This is the first cavities prevention measure you need to take. You should remember to brush your teeth thoroughly, at least twice a day according to your dentist's instructions.

Pay attention to choosing a soft-bristled toothbrush that is suitable for your mouth and teeth.

After brushing your teeth, you should combine mouthwash with specialized mouthwash or physiological saline to clean the nooks and crannies of the oral cavity, eliminating pathways for bacteria to grow.

In addition, you should also replace your toothbrush every 3 months and choose a toothpaste containing lots of fluoride and calcium to help strengthen your teeth. Healthy teeth will have good resistance, limiting the growth of bacteria and dental diseases.

2. Use dental floss

Normally, just brushing your teeth and using mouthwash cannot remove all the plaque and leftover food stuck in between your teeth.

Therefore, using dental floss to clean your teeth is very necessary, helping to remove food particles stuck in each tooth.
