Individual suffering from tooth decay undergo many dental issues and infection that affects oral health. The fact for tooth decay is too much of eating and drinking of sweet savories that causes hole in the enamel of the tooth that erodes the tooth. To prevent such problems below given are some tips to prevent tooth decay problem.
  • Diet plays a vital role. Acidic beverages like cold drinks, tea, coffee, etc and sweets like chocolate etc on frequent basis should be avoided. They can provide a conducive environment for plaque bacteria to ferment sugars to produce acid, which causes caries.
  • Poor oral hygiene can lead to plaque and tartar buildup, which can provide a habitat for microbial flora to colonize and contribute to low pH environment, which favors caries. Thus, good oral hygiene practice with regular brushing and flossing should be maintained.
  • Interproximal areas (the area between two proximal teeth surfaces) should be maintained clean with ‘interdental’ brushes, or dental floss or tape.
  • Follow the proper brushing technique as mentioned below:
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and apply gentle pressure, both of which may help reduce the risk of gingival injury.
  • Place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle against the gums. Move the brush back and forth gently in short (tooth-wide) strokes, brushing the outer inner and chewing surfaces of the teeth.
  • Use the tip of the brush to clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, using a gentle up-and-down stroke.
  • Brush your tongue to remove bacteria and freshen your breath.

Dr Ankita Gada BDS, Dental Director at Sabka Dentist says “High sugar consumption is the biggest threat to our dental health, and dental decay is the final consequence. I recommend that everyone must follow a good oral hygiene routine, which consists of brushing your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste."

Dr Zita Antao BDS Dental Director at Sabka Dentist, says “Decay is the number one reason for childhood dental problems and regular high consumption of sugar by children a major cause of this. We must look into reducing childhood sugar intake. Much of this sugar is taken in the form of snacks and sugar containing drinks and fizzy drinks. Try and limit your children’s snacking to no more than two a day and replace unhealthy sugary snacks with healthier foods such as fruit and vegetables."
