Are You Watching For Cavities?

Tooth decay is one of the most common health problems there is. Are you doing everything you can to prevent it? In this post from Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA we have some practical ideas that can help.

  • Avoid Refined Sugar: This one is probably obvious, but avoiding sugar should be your number one strategy to prevent cavities. Sugar and starch forms plaque, that sticky film that can coat the teeth. The acids in plaque start the process that forms cavities.
  • Consider Xylitol: Xylitol is a type of sugar alcohol that occurs naturally in some plants. It is not the same kind of alcohol that makes people drunk, so it’s okay for anyone who is avoiding that type of alcohol. It is popular as a sweetener and can actually be good for dental health.
  • Stay On Top Of Brushing: Daily brushing and flossing is still your best bet for preventing cavities. It cleans off the plaque that leads to cavities, and also helps to prevent gum disease.

Along with brushing, regular checkups at Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA help you maintain good dental health. People from Daly City, Milpitas, and Saratoga come to our practice for general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
