How to avoid dental decay

How to avoid dental decay

Our Liverpool Dentist understands that sugar is the primary cause of tooth decay. Reduce the amount, and the number of times you have drinks and foods containing sugar each day.

 
Both are important in determining the rate of tooth decay. When you have sugar, it should be part of a meal rather than between meals. Snacks and drinks should be free of added sugar, whenever possible. The frequent drinking of acidic drinks (such as fruit juices, squashes or fizzy drinks) should also be avoided to help prevent dental erosion.
 
Effective daily toothbrushing with a fluoride toothpaste is the best way of preventing both tooth decay and gum disease. Other methods, such as floss and special brushes are best used after they have been demonstrated by our Liverpool Dentist  team. 
 
Adults, irrespective of age and dental condition, should have an oral examination approximately once every year. Those at greater risk from oral disease, including smokers, may need to be seen more frequently at our Liverpool Dentist.
