What Causes Cavities?

  • Inadequate brushing and flossing allow plaque to build up, leading to cavities
  • Consuming sugary and acidic foods and drinks can erode tooth enamel, increasing the risk of cavities
  • Reduced saliva production can contribute to the development of cavities by allowing bacteria to thrive
  • Some people may be more prone to cavities due to genetic factors

Preventing Cavities

Follow these steps to prevent cavities and maintain optimal oral health:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to remove plaque and bacteria
  • Floss daily to clean between teeth and remove plaque from hard-to-reach areas
  • Limit sugary and acidic foods and drinks, and choose tooth-friendly snacks
  • Visit your dentist regularly for dental cleanings and check-ups to detect cavities early

Solutions for tooth decay

Restore your smile and oral health with our range of effective cavity treatments:

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to prevent cavities by sealing off the grooves and pits where bacteria and food particles can accumulate.

How can I prevent cavities?

Preventing cavities involves maintaining good oral hygiene, eating a balanced diet, and visiting your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. Our team can provide personalized advice to help you maintain optimal oral health, including dental sealants as a preventive measure.

Are dental fillings permanent?

While dental fillings are durable and long-lasting, they may need to be replaced over time due to wear and tear or recurrent decay. Our dentists will monitor your fillings during regular check-ups to ensure they remain intact and effective.

Can cavities be treated without drilling?

In some cases, early-stage cavities may be treated with remineralization techniques or fluoride treatments to reverse the decay process. However, more advanced cavities typically require drilling and filling to restore the tooth’s health and function.
