Doctor Vo Van Nhan advises patients on how to prevent cavities and dental care

Tooth decay can also be caused by deficiency of enamel. Enamelled teeth are easy to dissolve in the acid due to mineral salt composition in the enamel surface. The enamel surface has many sunken, deep grooves, easy to eat but difficult to brush clean. Feed is a nutrient source of bacteria, acid causes tooth decay in the valley.


To prevent tooth decay, the formation of acid on the surface of the teeth, ie reducing the amount of bacteria and carbohydrates present on the tooth surface, should be implemented.

 Brush thoroughly (brush properly) after eating and before going to sleep.

 Eat sugar properly, do not snack too many times during the day, do not eat rice, candy, sleep milk bottle while sleeping, ... Should eat candy after the meal, then brush right.

 Periodical dental check every 6 months.

In case of orthodontic decay should strengthen cavity prevention by:

Clean your mouth better, paying attention to the braces. If you need to buy specific types of brushes for orthodontic patients. The dental floss should be flossed for food. Where dentures can not pass, use a brush or toothpick to remove all the food left on the teeth.

 Should fill the chute grooves

If the surface of the teeth appears cloudy white as chalkboard, it is early tooth decay. See your doctor right away for treatment.
