Posted on Behalf of Dr. Raymond Jone

Dental cavities are one of the most rampant health problems in the world, yet they are also one of the most preventable issues. Cavities are permanently damaged areas in the tooth enamel that are caused by a combination of factors. As with many health issues, cavity prevention starts with individual habits and choices outside of the dentist's office. Understanding how cavities are formed can give you the information that you need to prevent their destruction.

Prevention is the key to life-long health, and this includes your dental health. Parents can start preventing oral health issues from the time their babies are very young. The American Dental Association recommends that all parents bring their children in to the dentist's office for their first visit by the time their children reach their first birthday. This is often surprising to parents because most of their 12-month olds do not have many teeth! However, bringing children in to the dentist from the very start allows them to prevent issues and promote optimal oral health.

There are many different reasons people choose to whiten their teeth. Whether you are ready for a change in confidence, you are going to be presenting a huge business deal in front of your company's leaders, or your big wedding day is just around the corner - teeth whitening is the most requested cosmetic dental procedure here in the United States. Stained, discolored, or dull teeth can dampen a person's appearance by putting an unwanted emphasis on teeth that are less than stellar. If you have ever cringed when looking through photographs of yourself because your teeth seem to be much less radiant than everyone else's, then it is time to ask about teeth whitening.

Do you cringe at the thought of eating a bowl of ice cream or biting into a piece of fruit that has just come out of the refrigerator? Do you let your coffee cool down at least 10 degrees before you take a sip? Have you noticed that you only tend to chew on one side of your mouth? If your answer was yes to any of these questions, it is time to talk to your dentist about tooth sensitivity. Ignoring your sensitive teeth will not make them go away - in fact, it will probably only make their sensitivity worse.

People have all kinds of excuses for not flossing - they do not like to put their fingers inside their mouth, they do not like the feeling of the floss around their fingers, they do not like the "white stuff" that comes off on their fingers, their gums bleed, or it hurts. While these excuses may be popular, they do not negate the fact that every person should be flossing because flossing is the most important thing you can do for your oral health.

In the last decade, there has been a great deal of hype surrounding children seeing a different dentist than their parents. This thinking has had a lot of controversy surrounding it, has given many doctors and parents some concern, and has caused a great deal of parents to be inconvenienced by running around town to different dental practices. There has also been a growing trend for dental practices that serve only senior-aged patients. Because of both of these opinions, many people have lost hope that they, and their family members, will find a dentist that can serve them for the long haul.
