The chronic presence of plaque acids in your mouth from inconsistent oral hygiene practices can gradually start to demineralize your tooth enamel. This is even more likely to be a problem if you frequently consume acidic beverages each day. As tooth enamel erosion continues to develop multiple teeth in your mouth can be at increasing risk of suffering a cavity. This could also occur in conjunction with tooth sensitivity problems.
If you have a concern about the health of your teeth, you should schedule a dental checkup at Dr. Eliot Tokowitz’s dental office. If the cavities are small, he might be able to repair the areas of tooth decay by applying dental fillings made from composite resin. If our team has further concerns about the strength of your teeth, we might recommend administering a fluoride treatment and using prescription daily fluoride supplements.
Dr. Eliot Tokowitz will likely also advise you on minor changes and improvements you can make in your attempts to brush twice and floss at least once each day. This can help reduce your chances of suffering new cavities between your routine dental checkups. If you live in the Chicago, Illinois, area and you have concerns about the strength and health of your teeth, you should call 773-409-4097 to schedule a checkup and regular cleaning at Sheffield Square Dental Care today!
