Dental Fillings in Mississauga
Dental fillings are an unfortunate but necessary restorative treatment. When the first lines of defense against dental caries (tooth decay that causes cavities) fail, our dentists can provide you with fillings to stop dental caries before it spreads. We can use a variety of filling materials, each of which provides different benefits, from aesthetic appeal to extra durability. Plus, we’ll make your appointments as comfortable as possible!
Top Tips for Preventing Cavities
Even teeth that have been well cared for can develop dental caries; it depends on aspects such as the makeup of your teeth (and, more specifically, your tooth enamel), your diet and lifestyle, and the specific types of bacteria in your mouth. However, dental hygiene is often a strong influencing factor, which is why it’s important to care for your teeth every day. Here are some of our top tips for preventing cavities:
Brush twice a day and make flossing part of the routine! (We know it’s difficult to make flossing a staple in your morning or evening routine, but many cavities develop in the areas between the teeth where your toothbrush can’t reach.)
Use fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride adds an extra layer of protection for your tooth enamel.
Use an anti-microbial mouthwash to eliminate decay-causing bacteria.
Reduce your sugar intake. Choose products with less sugar or no sugar. If you do eat something particularly sugary, brush and floss after!
