Why Do Dental Caries And Decay?
Hi, almost all of my teeth have caries and all of my gums have cavities that cause bad breath even though I routinely brush my teeth, when I see a doctor, he only says that my teeth have rotted but he does not do and does not recommend anything, what should I do do it?
Hello Adelia, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Dental caries is a condition where there is damage to the tooth enamel (outer layer of the tooth). This damage can arise due to a buildup of bacteria in tooth enamel which converts food debris and sugar in the teeth to become acidic, causing enamel to be destroyed and if left unchecked will cause cavities to occur.
Damage to adult teeth due to dental caries is permanent where the enamel and cavities that have not been able to grow back or experience repair by itself. If you have experienced many damaged teeth, it is strongly recommended that you consult further with the dentist, not the general practitioner. Your dentist will assist in determining what further actions should be taken in the current condition of your teeth.
In the meantime, to prevent damage to other teeth that are still good, besides consulting a doctor for a more appropriate solution, you can help by doing the following:
Brushing teeth the right way
Use dental floss to clean leftover food between your teeth
Gargling with salt water or fluorourous mouthwash
Reduce consumption of sweet and sour foods and drinks
Increase your water intake
Increase your intake of vegetables and fruits
Check your teeth to the dentist regularly
I hope this helps.
