Dr. G’s High Level Dentistry Series: Cavity Prevention

Dentist in Cambridge

Dentist in Cambridge

You brush and floss like you are supposed to, but you still get cavities.  Maybe you can feel that your dentist or hygienist keep bringing up you not flossing enough making it seem like you are lying.

First off this problem is extremely frustrating for everyone involved.  Sure, not everyone is excellent at flossing EVERY SINGLE DAY.  But for patient that are “religious” about taking care of their teeth, a diagnosis of new cavities can feel like a personal attack.  It makes people regret and feel shame for an after dinner mint or a sip of soda.

What does this mean?  It means the cause for this cavity development has not been found out yet and therefore not addressed properly.

There are actually many causes of cavity development that range from: nutritional factors, salivary flow (how much saliva you produce), alcohol intake, pH balance of the mouth,  and yes, improper brushing and flossing technique.

The solution that we use here at Sweet Spot Dental is a Customized cavity risk assessment where we can evaluate the many causes of cavity development and treat it accordingly.

Stop by our office today for a comprehensive exam to stop the cavity development in its tracks.
