Ways to fight dental caries

Posted on 5/9/2022 by Evan
Ways to fight dental cariesDental caries occurs when the tooth enamel is eroded by acids produced by lingering bacteria in the mouth to the extent that it breaks, causing the bacteria to spread to the inner softer part of the teeth- the dentin. Our specialists have harmonized several ways aimed at preventing and fighting dental caries.

Chewing sugarless gum

We recommend chewing sugarless gum after meals. The chewing of this gum boosts the rate of saliva production, which helps flush out sugar and bacteria that may be present in the mouth.

Vitamin D intake

Vitamin D boosts the absorption of calcium and phosphorus in the body. Higher absorption of these minerals is vital for your dental hygiene as they make up the enamel. A stronger enamel is more resistant to erosion by acids produced by bacteria in the mouth. You can find vitamin D contents from the sun rays and dairy products.


Fluoride strengthens the teeth and restores the minerals that might have been eroded from the enamel. This is known as remineralization.
We recommend brushing at least twice a day with a toothpaste containing fluoride to reap the full benefits of adding fluoride to your dental health routine.

Reducing sugar intake

Sugar feeds the bacteria in your mouth, leading to the production of acids that weaken your enamel leading to the formation of small holes in your teeth. Our specialists suggest that you stay away from sugary foods such as candy and soft drinks. Low sugar levels in your mouth will give room for remineralization of your teeth, giving rise to a stronger enamel that is more resistant to dental caries.

Visiting a dentist

Regular dental checkups will enable early dental caries detection and give room for their treatment before their severity. Please book an appointment with us to examine your dental carries and intervene to prevent further damages.
