How to Take Care of Teeth

Updated on March 4, 2013

Using The Right Type of Toothpaste Will Prevent Cavities

The majority of people would rather go to the Doctor then to the Dentist. There's just something about the possibility of having to get a cavity filled or a tooth pulled that frightens people. They're just one of those things that is easy to ignore. We tend to neglect our teeth and abandon the things that will prevent having to get teeth pulled in the future or having to get cavities filled. Like most things in our lives that we put on the side burner, if we are just consistent with a couple things every day we will see huge results in the long run. So first, you need the right toothpaste. Some toothpastes actually contain sugar. What you want is a toothpaste with the highest fluoride you can purchase. You can ask your dentist to prescribe a toothpaste with a concentrated amount of fluoride in it, but you can find them over the counter they just won't contain as much fluoride.

What Toothbrush to Use to Never Get Another Cavity

The reason you want a high fluoride toothpaste is because it strengthens the enamel on your teeth. Over time the enamel that we're born with gradually wears away. Using a high fluoride toothpaste will make the enamel on your teeth extremely strong, thus preventing future cavities.

The next thing you need to do to prevent cavities is brush your teeth everyday, even if you want to be lazy about it brush at least every morning ! We are told to do this from a young age, but it's alarming how many people do not actually brush their teeth consistently. Then we wonder why we get cavities.

The other thing I would do is make sure you're using the right type of toothbrush. I recommend using the Oral B brand toothbrush. The ones with a round head on them. The manual toothbrushes just do not clean your teeth well, so throw them away and invest in your good oral health and get an electric one.
