Cavity or Caries Prevention

Tooth decay, or dental caries, is caused by the bacterial breakdown of tooth enamel, the outermost layer of your teeth. Bacteria are found to break down foods and produce acid that destroys dental enamel. This breakdown of enamel then results in tooth decay.

Although largely preventable, dental caries is considered as one of the most common chronic diseases in children aged six to eleven years and adolescents aged twelve to nineteen years. Adults are also affected with nine out of ten over the age of twenty suffering from some extent of tooth-root caries.

What can prevent tooth decay?

  • Water fluoridation – Studies have shown that fluoridation can reduce decay in children’s teeth by 18-40 %
  • Good oral hygiene – Brush twice a day with fluoridated tooth paste and floss between your teeth
  • Limit snacking
  • Eat balanced and nutritious meals
  • Commit to regular dental examinations and professional dental cleanings

Ask Dr. Dargham about supplemental fluoride regimens and about how sealants can help reduce the incidence of decay.

Please contact Dr. Dargham and her team to schedule your initial consultation. For your convenience, Dr. Dargham welcomes patients in one of two locations (Coconut Grove Dental Clinic and Biscayne Blvd. Dental Clinic), both located in the heart of Miami Dade County.
