What is tooth decay and how does it develop?

Tooth decay, often referred to as "cavities", is a form of tooth enamel deterioration caused by acid attacks. These attacks are mainly due to the fermentation of sugars by bacteria present in dental plaque. This deterioration manifests itself in the formation of holes or small cavities in the tooth.

What are the symptoms of dental caries?

Symptoms of dental caries can include tooth sensitivity, particularly when eating hot, cold or sweet foods, persistent pain around the affected tooth, visible discoloration spots, often brown or black, on the teeth, and mild pain when chewing or biting.

How can dental caries be prevented?

Preventing dental caries involves several essential practices:

  1. Oral hygiene: Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, and floss daily to remove food residues and plaque from between your teeth.
  2. Regular visits to the dentist: We recommend that you see a dental professional every six months for a thorough cleaning and to check the health of your teeth.
  3. Balanced diet: Reduce consumption of sugary foods and beverages, and opt for a diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables.
  4. Fluoridation: The use of fluoride supplements may be recommended by your dentist, depending on your level of caries risk and your daily exposure to fluoride.

What technological innovations help prevent cavities?

Innovations in dentistry continue to evolve, including advanced toothpastes and mouthwashes with improved formulas to effectively combat plaque. In addition, mobile apps dedicated to tracking dental hygiene help users maintain an effective dental care routine.

Are there effective natural treatments for cavities?

Although consulting a dentist is essential, some natural remedies can complement conventional dental care. For example, coconut oil, used as a mouthwash, can help reduce plaque thanks to its antibacterial properties.

What role does fluoride play in preventing tooth decay?

Fluoride is a crucial element in the prevention of dental caries. Applied to the teeth, it helps strengthen enamel and makes teeth more resistant to decay caused by acids. Regular use of fluoride toothpaste is highly recommended, as is the application of fluoride varnish or fluoride gels during dental check-ups.

How does food choice affect the risk of developing cavities?

Diet plays a decisive role in oral health. Foods rich in sugars and acids, such as sweets, soft drinks and even certain fruits, can accelerate cavity formation by providing plaque bacteria with what they need to produce acids. Eating a diet low in sugars and high in dietary fiber can help reduce this risk.

Can the onset of tooth decay be reversed?

In some cases, it is possible to reverse the early stages of tooth demineralization before a cavity has formed. The use of fluoride toothpastes and mouthwashes can help remineralize areas where enamel is beginning to break down. Good hydration and adequate salivation also play a crucial role in neutralizing mouth acids and facilitating this process.

How important is saliva in preventing cavities?

Saliva is a fundamental element in the fight against cavities, as it helps neutralize the acids produced by plaque bacteria and remineralize enamel. It also acts as a natural cleaning agent, removing food particles. Encouraging adequate saliva production, for example by chewing sugar-free gum, can therefore be beneficial in preventing cavities.

How can education and awareness-raising help prevent cavities?

Education on good oral hygiene practices and awareness of caries risk factors are essential to reducing the prevalence of this disease. Educational programs, both in schools and in communities, can help individuals understand the importance of brushing, flossing and regular visits to the dentist, reinforcing preventive behaviors from an early age.
