Tooth Decay Treatment in Gainesville

Emphasizing Your Total Oral Health in Braselton

Tooth decay is the start of a process that can potentially lead to dental cavities. It occurs when the tooth’s outer protective layer, called enamel, is eroded by bacteria-induced acids. An excess of plaque, a sticky substance that naturally forms on your teeth, holds these acids in contact with your teeth causing them to become more susceptible to decay. Our dentists in Gainesville and Braselton can help you to ensure your teeth are healthy for years to come!

Understanding Tooth Decay

Tooth decay is a very common problem in our country. Still, the condition is highly preventable.

Understanding the causes of tooth decay can help reduce the risk of infection. Risk factors include:

  • Too much sugar or frequent snacking
  • Irregular tooth positioning, making it difficult to clean teeth
  • Failure to practice good oral hygiene
  • Insufficient saliva production
  • Inadequate dental fillings or restorations
  • Failure to have routine dental cleanings and exams

Treatment Options

There are simple ways to protect your teeth and prevent tooth decay:

  • Schedule routine checkups twice a year
  • Brush your teeth twice a day
  • Floss between your teeth at least once a day
  • Limit your sugar and snacking

If you’re concerned about tooth decay and would like to schedule a check-up, please contact our Gainesville- and Braselton-based dental team at (678) 582-8099.
