Common Causes of Dental Cavities

Common Causes of Dental CavitiesCavities are a result of tooth decay and can affect both the enamel and the dentin of your tooth. Once a cavity develops, it must be treated to prevent further damage to the tooth. Dr. Mirani, dentist in Beverly Hills, will remove the decayed area and use a dental filling to restore the tooth’s structure and function.

Many people associate cavities with children, however cavities can affect people of all ages, particularly those who:

• Have an unhealthy diet
A diet with too much sugar, too many processed foods and not enough nutrients can leave your mouth more vulnerable to dental diseases, including tooth decay.

• Have gum disease
As gum disease erodes your gums, your tooth roots can be exposed and susceptible to cavities.

• Have an acidic diet
Acids from sodas, juice, energy drinks and certain types of fruit can wear away the enamel, which leaves your teeth at risk of developing cavities.

• Lack fluoride
Fluoride in your water and in your toothpaste can strengthen your teeth and help remineralize enamel so that they can maintain their natural resilience to cavities.

• Have poor dental hygiene
Improper brushing techniques, infrequent brushing or a lack of flossing can all lead to the buildup of plaque and bacteria, which decay your teeth.

Protect your teeth against cavities by maintaining excellent oral hygiene, visiting our office twice a year for a professional cleaning and exam and through maintaining a healthy diet. Contact us today to learn more or to schedule your next appointment.
