At Priority Dental in Casper WY, we see more cavities in our patients than we would like to. Cavities are far too common in the United States, and there is a tendency to consider them inevitable.
Cavities happen when certain types of bacteria produce acids in the mouth. These acids destroy the enamel of a tooth, as well as its underlying dentin. Holes in the enamel are cavities.
If you’ve got a toothache or new sensitivity in your teeth, or if it hurts when you chew, then you may have a cavity. Call our office so we can get it filled.
To keep your teeth from developing new cavities, we recommend daily brushing, as well as the following three things:
- Strengthen your teeth with fluoride: Most municipal water supplies contain fluoride. Also, make sure it’s in your toothpaste. Not all toothpastes have it.
- Get dental sealants: We can paint sealants onto your teeth; specifically your back teeth. Sealants act as an added layer of protection for your teeth. You’ll still need to brush!
- Regular Check-ups: Seeing us for a cleaning and checkup every six months means we’ll find any new decay early, and treat it.
At Priority Dental in Casper WY we want all our patients to have healthy teeth and gums. Patients from Riverton, Thermopolis, and Douglas come to our practice for family and cosmetic dentistry.
