  • CAUSES:
    If you do not brush your teeth after meals (especially after eating cakes, ice-creams, sweets and so on), you increase the presence of "lactic acid" in your mouth. This acid is the culprit of cavity formation, because it results in the destruction of the tooth enamel.
  • TREATMENTS:
    Cavities come in all shapes and sizes, just like humans. Therefore, the filling procedure and material used varies. Most of these materials are both "functional" and "esthetically pleasing" and are used to fill the cavity once the damaged tissue is removed.
  • PREVENTION:
    Brushing your teeth if possible 20 minutes after meals, flossing and or using a proxy-brush regularly and of course - last but not least - VISITING YOUR DENTIST REGULARLY.

     

Dental visits should be scheduled twice a year, but it is suggested to go every 3 months, in order to avoid the formation of anaerobic bacteria under the gums ( 3 months is the critical time lapse for the formation of dangerous bacteria).
