- How can I prevent cavities?
There are several steps you can take to help prevent cavities. First, be certain to practice good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Maintaining a balanced diet without too much sugary snacking can also help to prevent tooth decay. Second, visit our dental office every six months for a dental cleaning and exam, or more frequently if you notice dental pain or damage of any kind. Dental sealants and fluoride treatments are also good tools for preventing cavities.
