Preventing Tooth Decay

Preventing Tooth Decay in Wyoming

Tooth decay remains the most important issue in dental health, and it affects people of all ages. At Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper we are committed to preventing tooth decay in our patients.

It can be an uphill battle sometimes. Tooth decay is caused by bacteria. It merges with plaque and acids to break down the enamel on your teeth. The tiny holes that can  result are what we call cavities.

The Sugar Factor

Tooth decay is usually a result of diet and oral hygiene choices. When sticky or sugary foods are consumed and allowed to remain on the teeth, it can result in tooth decay.

To help prevent it, limit sugary and starchy foods between meals. A good oral hygiene strategy is advised, and that means brushing twice a day and flossing at least once.

At Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper we are committed to the dental health of each patient. Services include complete family dentistry. Patients from Riverton and Douglas also come to us for cosmetic dentistry, and much more. Call to schedule an appointment today!
