Dental Caries: Your nightmare or your sweet dream (2019 Edition)

September 16 2019 – Sophie Green

Do you know what is caries? I believe more than 80% of your neighbors are struggling with them.

Tooth Caries also be known as caries or cavities, is one of the most common and widespread permanent diseases today and is also one of the most preventable. When you eat certain foods, the bacteria in your teeth break them down and produce acids that can severely damage the hard tissues of your teeth. The result is the formation of dental cavities.

Thank God, we are happy to have a collection of funny socks with cute teeth available! You can bring these socks to your daily life as a reminder. Don't forget to bring one to your dentist as a dental office gift.

What is the reason for Caries?

Typically, caries can be located in two specific areas of the teeth: the tooth caries, which forms at the top of the tooth where the food particles repeatedly come into direct contact with the teeth and caries which are dental caries between the teeth. It is in these two locations where bacteria pose a risk to your oral hygiene. If the teeth and adjacent areas are not properly cared for, the bacteria will begin to digest the sugars left over from the food in your mouth and turn them into acids as a waste product. These acids are strong enough to mineralize the enamel in your teeth and form tiny holes — the first stage of dental caries. As the enamel begins to break, the tooth loses the ability to strengthen the calcium and phosphate structures of the teeth naturally

Caries treatments

Professionally, there are four basic ways to deal with caries. These treatments performed by a dental professional can help heal the damage that comes from caries.
Seals: Seals are the most common form of treatment for the disease. A Dental practitioner drills the affected area s of teeth removes the disintegrated material into the prepared cavity and packs this space with a suitable dental filling material. Different types of fillers can be used, depending on the area where caries has appeared. Composite resin, the most common filler in the developed world, has a large color palette that dentists can use to repair caries lesions on teeth that are visible when you are smiling. In the case of back teeth, some dentists prefer to use other dental fillers that are stronger.

Crowns: Crowns are another option for dental professionals in the treatment of dental caries, and are used only when a large proportion of the tooth is destroyed by the disease. When tooth decay results in the need for large seals, the tooth becomes more prone to cracking and eventually breaking. The dentist will try to save the rest of the tooth, repair it, and eventually fit the tooth with an alloy or porcelain crown cover.
Channel root: another method of treatment a dentist can use is called a root canal. As caries progresses through the enamel and settles in the center of the tooth, it may even

How to prevent caries

Despite the effect of tooth decay, it can have on your teeth if left unattended, dental caries or cavities are greatly prevented with a great oral hygiene treatment! This includes regular dental exams to determine pre-existing conditions before leading to more serious issues on the road. The older a dental professional can spot signs of poor oral hygiene, such as a plaque buildup, the better your chances of preventing dental caries and gum problems than ever happen in the first place.

Some recommendations that a dentist always keeps along with their mouse:

Brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes using fluoride, paste or gel. We recommend Crest Pro-Health products containing fluoride to help reduce the production of acid that can damage your teeth.

Make regular dental floss after brushing, especially if you eat or drink sugary foods or drinks. Certain foods high in sugar can provide a consistent supply of harmful acid to the hard tissues of the teeth. Dental floss once or twice a day with Crest Pro-Health products can help you remove food particles from the difficult areas of your missing teeth.
