Tooth decay. Yuck!
Tooth decay may cause cavities, which can have a big impact on not only oral health, but also your overall health. So imagine that if your mouth has some grossness going on in it, that grossness could be elsewhere in your body. Yeah...that's not too pretty to think about, so our goal is to prevent cavities and tooth decay as soon as we can.
There are a few things that our patients can do to prevent cavities:
- Brush two times a day
- Floss once a day
- Visit the dentist twice a year
- Avoid sugary drinks and foods
- Avoid exposure to acid (e.g. soda, fruit juices, citrus fruits, acid reflux, etc.)
Our Newest Weapon in the Fight Against Tooth Decay
Most of the methods listed above are probably familiar. But there's another tool in our arsenal that can stop cavities before they get out of hand. Let me introduce you to the Spectra. The following video talks about the amazing abilities of this wonder technology.
The Fortune-Telling Tooth Decay Predictor
"[The Spectra] is like Dental Doppler!" which is pretty cool, but I like to think of it more as a fortune teller that predicts when teeth could turn into festering sites of tooth decay. That prediction doesn't have to come true, though. Since the Spectra detects the early stages of decay, it allows us to treat it before cavities are a problem. Cavities are stopped in their tracks. No more worrying about your tooth becoming the next breeding ground of disgusting decay.
Good oral health maintained. Yeah!
So keep up your good oral habits at home, and we'll help you out by using the Spectra. Between your hard work and our fancy-pants tool, we'll make sure your mouth--and your overall health--are as fantastic as can be.
