Preventing Cavities: What is a Cavity?

Preventing Cavities: What is a Cavity?

When you’re a kid, your parents told you to brush your teeth so you wouldn’t get cavities. You probably brushed your teeth because your parents told you to. Now that you’re an adult, your Oasis Dental team knows that  your awareness of what cavities are and how to prevent them may help motivate you to take better care of your teeth.

A cavity is a hole in the enamel of your tooth. These holes develop when you don’t get all the food particles off your teeth. Bacteria in your mouth leads to plaque, and the plaque build-up eats away at your tooth enamel.

If you want to avoid cavities, the good news is that all you have to do is take care of your teeth. Brushing and flossing regularly, using fluoride mouthwash, and visiting your Bala Cynwyd, PA dentist every six months will help you avoid cavities.
