Hello. Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Dental caries is tooth decay characterized by the appearance of holes. The main cause of dental caries is the remains of food, dirt, and bacteria in the mouth that accumulate on the surface of the teeth. Characteristics and symptoms of dental caries are:
Mild to sharp pain when consuming sweet, hot, or cold foods
The hole seen in the tooth
Brown, black or white stains on the surface of the teeth
Pain when you bite food
In this case if you do not get good treatment it can cause
- Oral infections occur easily such as thrush, sores in the oral cavity
- Yellow fluid buildup (abscess) in the oral mucosa or teeth
- Teeth become easily broken or dated
- Tooth pain continues
We recommend that you do routine checks to the dentist at least 2 times a year, especially on teeth that have been damaged should be treated with routine control every month depending on the degree of damage and severity of the disease. The more important thing is to apply the following things to maintain dental health
Brush your teeth twice a day with toothpaste containing fluoride.
Clean teeth with dental floss at least once a day.
Reducing consumption of sweet and sour foods and drinks, such as candy or soft drinks.
Reducing snacking habits
Gargling with salt water or mouthwash with fluoride
Eat foods that are healthy for your teeth, such as vegetables and fruit
Thus the information we can convey. May be useful. Thank you
