Dental Caries (decay)

Preventing Dental Caries?

I don't know about you, but i would rather not get dental caries in the first place and save myself the pain, inconvenience and cost of having fillings, crowns possibly even a root canal treatment here and there.

Well the good news is, dental caries is largely, make that almost completely, preventable... Woohoo! And it gets better... it doesn't even require all that much effort. You just need a basic understanding of the 3 elements that cause it - sugar, plaque and susceptible tooth surface (which you should more than have by now if you have been through this series) and know how to deal with each of them.

We have dedicated a segment to this; 'preventing dental caries' in our care section, which sums it up nicely and gives you the links to all the information you will need to make dental cavities a thing of the past.
