Your Cavity Prevention Plan


Tooth decay ranks as the number-two most-common health issue facing the nation, falling only one spot behind the common cold. That statistic is a harsh representation of the state of health in the United States, since cavities are a sign that your health may be failing you. Research has linked poor oral health to an increased risk of lung and heart disease, as well as diabetes and premature births of babies with a low birth weight. Stats like these make skipping out on visits to your family dentistry office seem like a dangerous game. According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, more than 90 percent of individuals in the U.S. between the ages of 20 and 64 have had cavities in their permanent teeth. To avoid becoming part of these unfortunate statistics, learn more about preventing tooth decay and gum disease.

Remember all those nights you fell asleep without brushing your teeth? Don’t worry about the past, just get into the habit of practicing consistent dental care habits: brush twice a day, use a fluoride mouthwash, floss every day, and see an affordable dentist in Fayetteville twice a year.

A cavity—which is simply a hole in a tooth—will develop if you don’t keep your teeth free of plaque and bacteria and plaque. Bacteria convert food particles trapped in your teeth into acid. The acid and bacteria then combine with the food debris and saliva to create plaque, the sticky substance that causes tooth decay. Plaque, which is filled with acids that erode the enamel on your teeth, can start forming less than 30 minutes after eating.

Following are the treatment options for cavities, along with dental care techniques that will aid in cavity prevention:

Cavity Treatments


If a cavity is small, your dentist in Fayetteville will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and restore it with a filling.


For larger cavities, your dentist will place a crown on the tooth to restore it to its normal size and shape.

Root Canals

If tooth decay spreads to the pulp and causes an infection, you will need a root canal, which is the removal of the pulp and nerve, followed by sealing off the roots.

Cavity Prevention

Dental Care Innovations

Cavity prevention technology is being designed that will locate and treat tooth decay at very early stages. Researchers are working on a special fluorescent light that can locate the beginning stages of decay. A “smart” filling is being developed, which will time-release fluoride to the tooth to prevent additional tooth decay.

Brush Regularly

Skipping brushing your teeth can lead to a build up of plaque, particularly at night, when saliva production is low.

Watch Your Diet

Be aware that starchy, refined carbs can do just as much dental damage as sugary foods.


Drink water if your mouth feels dry. Fluids, like water and saliva, can help to rinse away bacteria, preventing tooth decay.
