If you want to keep your pearly whites in tip-top shape, then it’s best to reduce your chances of having dental cavities as much as possible. Tooth decay in Whitaker, Pennsylvania, is one of the worst dental problems that attacks your smile, and we recommend preventing it at all costs by doing the following things:

-Keep up on oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing your smile once a day, and rinsing your mouth daily with mouthwash. Having a proper oral hygiene routine will help you remove sugars, plaque, and food particles from your smile.

-Do your best to limit between-meal snacking as much as possible.

-Visit your dentist every six months for a routine dental cleaning and checkup.

-Try to keep sugar out of your diet. You can do so by making wise food and beverage choices.

-Include dairy, plenty of fruits and vegetables, and water in your diet as much as possible.
