Cavities are tiny holes that develop in areas of your teeth that have decayed due to poor oral hygiene. If you don’t remove plaque from your teeth with proper flossing and tooth brushing, you are increasing your risk of developing a cavity.
Cavities are among the most common dental problems in people around the world, but good oral care, including proper flossing, can help prevent them. If you ignore a cavity long enough, it may become larger and cause symptoms such as a toothache.
When it comes to cavities, prevention is the best protection. Prevent cavities by keeping plaque under control with a consistent schedule of twice-daily tooth brushing and daily flossing.
Steps to remove dental plaques
- Use floss to remove germs and food particles between teeth. Then Rinse.
- Use any tooth brushing method that is comfortable, but do not scrub hard back and forth. Small circular motions and short back and forth motions work well. Rinse.
- To prevent decay, it’s what’s on the toothbrush that counts. Use fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride is what protects teeth from decay.
- Brush the tongue for a fresh feeling! Rinse again.
