92% of all adults have at least one cavity by the age of 64. But it does not mean YOU have to be among them, especially when cavities are preventable.
So how do you become one of the 8%? Suit up, practice your battle cry and step inline with these 3 tips:
Brush up your dental defense.
A basic dental routine is the first line of defense when you go to war with tooth decay. Brush twice a day for at least two minutes and floss once a day. Your dentist might also recommend adding a mouth rinse.
And enlist your dentist’s help. Make an appointment at least once a year (your dentist may recommend more often) to remove any plaque and check for early enemy signs of decay.
At ease, cravings!
If you’re battling with a sweet tooth, here are some great alternatives to help you scare away sugary opponents.
Seal any breaches.
Think of sealants as reinforcement to your cavity-fighting army. Sealants are a thin, plastic shield placed on your tooth’s grooved surface to prevent bacteria from making a base camp. Ask your dentist to see if sealants are right for you!
