Cavities can be prevented with good dental care
Updated: 7/31/2009 3:00:36 PM

Cavities can be prevented with good dental care Many people learn that they have cavities every year, but some are not sure that uncomfortable fillings can be prevented by practicing good dental health.

An article on reveals the true causes of cavities, with input from Dr John Berchelman, who advises that not only sugar but bacteria causes these holes to develop.

He explains that the bacteria adhere to and feed off thick carbohydrates such as those that cling to the tooth surface after consuming sugary foods. This in turn dissolves tooth enamel and the bacteria secrete acid that further breaks down the tooth.

Eventually, Berchelman says, the tooth will cave in thanks to the fact that the bacteria have worn away its inside. This is the cavity itself.

While this sounds quite gruesome, it is easy to prevent cavities and keep the dentist happy.

The American Dental Association recommends a diet with plenty of vegetables and fresh fruits that contain natural sugars and are therefore less harmful.

On top of that, people should all remember to brush or floss twice per day and limit the amount of sugary and carbohydrate-laden foods that they consume.
