I am facing cavity issues in all my tooth's. I do eat chocolates and drink tea regularly. I have undergone a root canal treatment once however facing a lot of issues with the rest of them. Please let me know what can I do to prevent any further cavities.
1st of all cavity which is already devlop should be treated 1st as existing cavity grows. And you have to maintain gud oral hygiene by follow some points.
Regular do 2 times brushing with proper brushing technique.
Do not eat anything after night brushing.
Visit your dentist regularly every 6 month for routine check up.
Proffesional cleaning of teeth when required (mostly yearly)
change your brush every 3 month
avoid sweet and sticky food.
You will have to improve your eating habits. Include a lot of fiber in your diet. Chew really well so that more saliva is produced, which, in turn, acts as a self cleansing mechanism. Please visit your dentist biannually.
