How to Prevent Cavities in the Future

How to Prevent Cavities in the Future

Studies show that over 90% of Americans has had one cavity in their lifetime. Although it is common, no one wants one of course. It can affect your smile and make you feel self-conscious when you are around others. And even worse, if it is not treated immediately and correctly, it can lead to tooth decay, bad breath, and other health related problems. Causing you to pay a lot of money for different procedures to fix it.

So how do you prevent future cavities? We at New Beginnings have compiled a list of a few tips on how to take better care of your teeth.

Tip #1 Get Rid of the Sweet Tooth: We all like something sweet every now and again but eating candy and other sugary pastries everyday is a big no-no. Not only will it harm your overall health but snacking on them every day is one of the main reasons for cavities. This also includes coffee, soda, and other sugary energy drinks as well. Try cutting back and finding better alternatives, such as grapes and strawberries. Also, drink plenty of water and if you don’t like the “bland taste”, try mixing lime, lemon, or cucumber in it to spice it up. After doing this, you will see a positive change in your oral health and as well as your overall.

Tip #2 Start a Routine at Home: Another way to prevent cavities is to brush your teeth twice a day, morning and night, and to always floss and rinse with mouthwash afterwards. But we recommend to not just buy any toothpaste or mouthwash that you find at the store. During a routine check-up, be sure to ask your dentist which one is best for your teeth. Your dentist should be able to recommend a few that you can choose from that will get the job done.

Tip #3 Schedule Your Next Appointment: Besides eating a ton of sweets or not taking better care of teeth at home, one number one reason why many people have cavities is because they don’t go to the dentist on a regular basis. You should be going to the dentist twice a year for a dental cleaning and a check-up for any current or potential problems. A dentist can provide different examinations and treatments to stop the problem right then and there.

Tips on Finding the Right Dentist

Tips on Finding the Right Dentist

Finding the right dentist can be a tough task. There are so many things you must take in account when finding the best dentist that will serve you and your family. Although there isn’t a magic solution to finding the perfect one in your area, we have listed a few tips that can help making the decision easier.

Tip 1: Ask Your Physician

It might seem strange to ask your physician about recommendations for a good dentist during your physical exam but it’s not. Oral hygiene is just as important to your doctor as everything else. Doctors know that not having good oral hygiene can lead to long-term effects on your overall health if not treated correctly. Your doctor, will more and likely, have a few dentists, in mind, that you can go to.

Tip 2: Ask Family and Friends

What’s a better way to get an honest answer, about a dentist, than from your friends and family? Ask them about their experience and if they can recommend any good dentists. When it comes to friends and family, you will get the unfiltered truth about a dentist.

Tip 3: Look at Online Reviews

Another way to get the unfiltered truth is by looking at the reviews online. The best sites to find reviews are on Google, Yelp, Angie’s List, Facebook, and a few others. Just search “dentistry near you” and a list of reviews will pop up from different people who have had their service.

Again, we know that finding a good dentist is difficult, but luckily New Beginning’s Dentistry is here. We are known for our quality service and excellent dental treatment in the Fayetteville area.
