What causes tooth decay🦷

Tooth decay is when holes appear in your teeth.
It is caused by a change in the acidity of your saliva. Whenever you eat or drink ANYTHING other than water this alters the environment in your mouth and causes fluoride to be lost from your enamel, making your teeth demineralise (dissolve). It takes up to an hour for your saliva to bring it back into the safe zone.
It can look like a dark or yellow spot on the enamel (white area of your tooth).
You may notice the tooth becoming sensitive to sweet items or to temperature.

To prevent decay from forming it`s recommended:

• To brush your teeth twice day for no less than 2 minutes with a fluoride toothpaste
• Do not rinse after brushing or use a mouthwash
• Use a waterpik to dislodge food from in between your teeth
• Use a tepe brush daily to clean the surfaces in between teeth that your toothbrush won’t reach
• Visit the dentist every 6 months for a check up
