Little Known Cavity-Prevention Tips


Introduction Most people already know that brushing, flossing and seeing their dentist regularly will help them prevent cavities. However, there are several other things that people can do to prevent cavities. Below are some little-known tips that will help prevent cavities.

Eat An Apple Every Day:

Eat An Apple Every Day An apple a day not only keeps the doctor away, but it can also help prevent cavities. Apples are made up of about 80 percent water, and the high water content helps dilute the sugar in the mouth. Additionally, apples are very crunchy, and crunchy foods help stimulate saliva production. Saliva has antibacterial properties and can help keep the mouth clean. You should also consider eating pears regularly. Pears have a very high water content.

Drink Green or Black Tea:

Drink Green or Black Tea You should drink unsweetened black or green tea because it has a natural fluoride in it. This can help reduce the growth of bacteria. Black and green tea does not cause the enamel to erode.

Brush Your Teeth Before You Eat Breakfast:

Brush Your Teeth Before You Eat Breakfast Many people think that it is best to brush their teeth after they eat breakfast. On the contrary, it is best to brush one’s teeth before eating breakfast. Bacteria accumulates in the mouth while you are sleeping. If you brush first thing in the morning, then you will be able to remove much of this cavity-causing bacteria.

Brush Your Teeth Before You Eat Breakfast:

Brush Your Teeth Before You Eat Breakfast It is also important to note that there are many breakfast foods that are very acidic. Bread, jam, sugary cereals and orange juice are examples of such foods. If you brush your teeth immediately after eating something that is acidic, then you may cause permanent damage to your teeth.

Avoid Drinking Soda In Between Meals:

Avoid Drinking Soda In Between Meals It is best for you to avoid drinking sodas completely. However, if you want to drink sodas, then you should avoid doing so in between meals. Water should be the drink that you opt to consume between meals. Sodas are very acidic and make it a-lot easier for your teeth to decay. Some of this acid has a chance to be washed away if you drink your soda with a meal. Additionally , if you sip your soda through a straw, then you can reduce the amount of soda that comes in contact with your teeth.

Chew Some Sugar-Free Gum:

Chew Some Sugar-Free Gum Dentists have been warning people for several years about how chewing gum can lead to tooth decay. That is why you should switch to sugar-free gum if you like to chew gum. Sugar-free gum will not damage your teeth. In fact, it can actually benefit your teeth. Sugar-free gum helps stimulate the production of saliva, which helps rinse away food particles. It also helps neutralize the acids that lead to tooth decay.

Use Xylitol:

Use Xylitol Xylitol is a natural sweetener that has been shown to help prevent cavities. Not only does it help prevent cavities, but it also helps strengthen the teeth. There are many toothpastes and mouthwashes today that contain xylitol. You can also add it to your food.
