Reverse cavities at Polished Dental Hygiene Vancouver
Cavities, if caught early enough, can be reversed. Reversing and preventing cavities are some of the reasons why regular dental hygiene visits are so important.
By reversing cavities, you save money, time and teeth. Every time a restoration (aka filling) is completed, it takes away more of your natural tooth, creating a new margin where bacteria can cause another cavity, called recurrent decay.
However, with regular dental hygiene appointments, at Polished Dental Hygiene Vancouver, cavities prevention and management can be discussed!
Some ways to prevent cavities is by using Prevident 5000 toothpaste or Clinpro 5000 toothpaste. Rinsing after brushing, with water or mouthwash, is NOT recommended. This allows the fluoride time to absorb onto the teeth and prevent cavities.
