When cavities start they are are in the outer enamel surface of the tooth. We can prevent those cavities from getting bigger or even stop them in their tracks!! How?

  1. Amazing oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing 2 x  per day makes a huge difference.
  2. Fluoride treatments – using a fluoride toothpaste can harden the teeth but there are other fluoride treatments (like varnishes and silver diamine fluoride) that provide non-invasive cavity treatments.
  3. Seeing a dentist early and often. Dr. Hall recommends seeing a dentist by 1 year of age and continuing to see your dentist every 6 months. That way we can catch problems early.
  4. Traditional Dental treatments – when all else fails, we can do treatments such as fillings or crowns to treat tooth decay.
