Is Tooth Decay

Reversible?

Although there appears to be a straightforward prevention plan in place, tooth decay is a problem that many people continue to deal with. This is a problem that occurs over an extended period of time. It is occasioned by the buildup of plaque and a number of other factors. Tooth decay results from the activity of bacteria in your mouth. The bacteria use the sugar from the food you consume to create acids that end up eating through the enamel of your teeth.

Saliva in your mouth contains minerals which help replenish the enamel. The fluoride in your toothpaste also helps the enamel to heal. When the enamel is exposed continuously to acid attacks more than it can re-heal itself, tooth decay will set in. The good news, however, is that the decay can be reversed by adopting good dental care practices and turning to healthy diets. It is only after tooth decay has gone too far that reversing it will be hard. When a cavity forms on the tooth, fillings or tooth removal might be the only viable solutions. Prevention is better than fighting tooth decay.

Daily dental care

Better dental care practices are the first step to dealing away with tooth decay. You should brush two times a day and floss. Flossing helps to get to the spaces a toothbrush cannot get to. This will help prevent the pile-up of plaque. Anti-microbial mouthwash can be added to reduce bacteria presence in your mouth. It will also prevent tartar formation.

Good diet

What you eat will affect your oral health. The right diet will provide the nutrients you need to promote oral health. Avoid taking foods that are rich in sugars. Sugary foods will impact your dental health negatively. You need to take foods that are rich in vitamin D and calcium. This helps with the development and replenishment of the enamel and jaw bone.

Dental visit

When you have a dentist Nobleton appointment, don’t miss it. It is easy to assume that your teeth are fine and skip the appointments. This will be a serious mistake. You need at least one visit to your dentist for a checkup. This will enable you to detect developing problems early. Dentists will also conduct deeper mouth cleaning. The dentist will also help customize a better plan for your oral hygiene.

Avoid tobacco

If you smoke, you have a higher risk of getting stained teeth. Maintaining healthy lifestyles will keep your teeth from staining and make the environment unfavorable for the growth of bacteria. Behaviors you should avoid include the consumption of tobacco and other substances that may cause your teeth to be stained.

Use fluoride toothpaste

When choosing a toothpaste, pick the one that contains fluoride. Fluoride is crucial for preventing problems to the enamel. It helps prevent and reverse decay. You can also find fluoride in water and also in fluoride rinse.

All things considered, tooth decay can be prevented and in most cases, it can be reversed. Taking good care of your dental health consistently is the key to preventing and reversing tooth decay.

I am beyond grateful to the staff at the Smiles On Queen. I until the past 6 months had allowed my health and especially my dental health to rapidly decline. I had avoided the dentist for close to a decade and had a lot of fear, shame and embarrassment regarding the state of my teeth. From the moment I entered the office and furthermore on my call to book my appointment I was met with a degree of compassion and understanding that quite honestly has left me overwhelmed. The care, patience and expertise of the hygienist was extraordinary. Additionally the receptionist was equally as kind and understanding. Thank you - you have done so much for my self esteem - I can smile again without having to worry about the appearance of my teeth. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.

I was referred to this office by a friend because they offer IV sedation. I was very anxious at the dentist before but I was able to remove my wisdom teeth and I did not feel pain or discomfort. The dentist Dr. Lawrence was confident and told me what I was to expect afterward in terms of minor swelling and they also told me to come back if I have any problems but I am fine and happy. Overall I am happy this office was able to see me and they are great.

This dental office is staffed with some of the best people you will ever meet. First of all I would like to say that I’m really afraid dentists (I think its dentistophobia 😊), I've been to over 5 different ones with the same negative results from all. My mother is a cancer survivor and suggested that I check out her dental office...so I did. I was greeted by a team of fantastic people concerned with nothing but my well being. These people are angels sent here to help others in a time of difficulty, it is, honestly an absolutely amazing place.

My experience with both Dr Hung and Dr Norsen has been great and their office staff are very welcoming! I was well informed in details of my treatments and felt safe and secure for them to perform it. Both dentist are very gentle and does a phenomenal job. I was happy with my filling when it was done and I'd recommend these guy to every one. 😄

This was by far one of the best dental experiences I've ever had. I have a huge fear of the dentist and was open about my fears upon arrival. Dr. Norsen was kind, caring and catered to my needs and phobia. I 100% recommend this dental facility. I also felt nothing while receiving my fillings and I'm very hard to freeze and had a lot of work that needed to be done. Over all an awesome experience for the dentist.
