How to prevent dental caries by following these steps

Brush twice a day with a fluoride rich toothpaste. Clean between your teeth daily with floss or inter-dental cleaner. Eat nutritious and balanced meals and limit snacking. Check with Dr. Chandy about the use of supplemental fluoride, which strengthens your teeth, and about use of dental sealants (a plastic protective coating) applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (where decay often starts) to protect them from decay. Visit Aegis Dental regularly for professional cleanings and oral examination.
