Hello Guys, today I'm going to talk about a important theme as it is the dental caries.
Who has not gone to the dentist for a simple check and cleaning and it turns out that it has cavities?
Dental Caries is a progressive condition that produces the destruction of the dental tissue (enamel, dentine and cement) that is caused by the bacteria present in the bacterial plaque that lodges in our teeth after the ingestion of food.
Dental caries can affect enamel, enamel and dentin and depending on how deep it can affect the dental pulp producing abscesses in the long run.
How to know if you have cavities?
Sometimes cavities are difficult to see, especially when they are in the back or between the teeth. That is why despite not watching anything at first glance we must go to the dentist every 6 months for a review and if necessary a cleaning to remove the calculus.
Why is the calculus formed?
Very simple, the dental calculus is not more than the calcification or the hardening of the bacterial plaque. That is, calculus is only done in areas where bacterial plaque is not removed correctly. That is why it is important to have a good brushing and flossing. I have cavities, what do I do? & nbsp;
Well, they tell you that you have cavities, there comes a time of tension, what can you do? TRUST YOUR ODONTOLOGIST . He will tell you the procedure to follow depending on your case. Your duty is to consult the days indicated.
If the caries is superficial, this space will be removed and filled with light-cured composite or amalgam. On the other hand, if the caries is very deep and reaches the nerve, they should undergo a root canal treatment.
How can I prevent caries?
• A good brushing technique with toothpaste containing fluoride MINIMUM TWICE A DAY (when waking up and before going to sleep)
• Flossing before going to sleep is very important to remove bacterial plaque and food debris between the teeth.
• Consult your dentist every six months for a review.
