With everyone busy during the holiday season, people are letting their oral care slide. This can be dangerous to your oral health. Once tooth decay begins, the outer layer of your teeth begins to wear down and deteriorate. This outer layer is also known as your tooth enamel. Once your tooth enamel is week, cavities are created and give constant attacks from oral bacteria and sugar that has been left, due to lack of brushing or flossing. If cavities are left untreated, tooth decay can result in serious oral complications and serious pain.
The good news is tooth decay can be treated. There are always things you can do to help fight tooth decay and prevent cavities from ever forming. These items include:
•Brush your teeth twice a day
•Use effective Mouthwash
•Visit your dentist regularly for a cleaning
•Replace your toothbrush regularly
