Cavities are caused by the process of your tooth enamel being eroded until holes are formed in the teeth. Although tooth enamel is strong and durable, cavities can still form in children as well as adults alike.

Don’t let cavities overtake your mouth. Correct your smile with cavity-fighters. Listed below are some great tips to use:

– Always brush twice a day with ADA-approved toothpaste, and use a toothbrush that has soft bristles.
– Floss your teeth at least once per day with high-quality dental floss or a dental flossing tool.
– Eat healthy and natural foods, and avoid snacking between meals.
– Visit Healthy Smiles Dental Care PC during your scheduled visits for oral exams and professional cleanings.
