Cavities: Did You Know?

Posted on 1/6/2014 by Alan Snodgrass
Cavities: Did You Know?Some people are more at risk to get cavities than others. A wide range of factors determines your chance of developing cavities. Here are just a few:

•  Acidity of diet-soda and acidic foods
•  Frequency and length of brushing and flossing
•  Illness (such as diabetes or acid reflux)
•  Use of fluoride toothpaste and mouthrinse
•  Oral conditions (such as dry mouth)
•  Presence of dental braces
•  Presence of crowns, bridgework, dentures
•  Frequency of dental visits

Some factors are habit and lifestyle choices. Others are caused by medical conditions and illnesses. At your next appointment, ask us how you can reduce your likelihood of developing cavities.
