Can tooth decays be prevented?
Brushing the teeth after the breakfast and before sleeping and use of dental floss every day is the most efficient way. Because of the fact that food remnants accumulate in the recessions in the masticator surfaces and interdental spaces, tooth brushes should be small headed. Inner surfaces of the teeth, outer surfaces, masticator surfaces and upside of the tongue should be brushed and dental floss should be used for interdental spaces. Brushes should be soft or medium, and they should be replaced regularly. Someone else’s brush must never be used. Fluorine tooth paste should be used and the role of fluorine in prevention of tooth decays should be benefited. Fluorine gargles may also be used as a supportive method, which provide a fresh clean feeling. Trying to consume sugary foods in the main meals and avoiding them between meals is another precaution. Visiting a dentist regularly is the best way to prevent decay or catch it early. Also, in case of hot and cold sensitivity, painful teeth, early tooth decay in gray color, brown spotting and cavities, a dentist must be consulted immediately.
