Preventing good oral health is important to avoid future problems. One of the most common dental problems people encounter is dental caries.
Caries is an infectious disease of the teeth caused by the destruction of tooth tissue. The destruction is caused by bacteria that reside in the oral cavity. They feed on sugars from the food and drinks you consume, while producing acids in the process. The strongest protective layer of the teeth, enamel, is degraded by the acids produced as a byproduct of bacterial metabolism. Acids introduced into the oral cavity through beverages and food can also damage the enamel coating.
Yes, dental caries can lead to serious dental problems if not treated in time. If caries is left untreated, it can continue to progress and reach the innermost part of the tooth, leading to infection of the tooth nerve, complications, and ultimately tooth loss. The presence of decayed teeth increases the risk of developing caries on healthy teeth. Therefore, regular preventive examinations with X-ray images are necessary, and affected teeth should be treated promptly. Caries treatment in our practice is performed using modern equipment and materials, under local anesthesia for a painless experience.
The good news is that dental caries can be prevented. Here are some tips for maintaining healthy teeth and preventing caries: – Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. – Use dental floss (or interdental brushes, if recommended by your dentist) to clean hard-to-reach areas. – Limit the consumption of sticky carbohydrates (sugars), carbonated drinks, and sweet foods. Reduce the frequency of consuming such foods and drinks. – Regularly visit your dentist for preventive check-ups and teeth cleaning.

a) It is recommended to visit your dentist for regular check-ups. This will help detect dental problems such as caries or periodontitis early and take preventive measures for treatment before they worsen. Regular visits to the dentist are also important for plaque and tartar removal, which accumulate over time and can lead to problems with both teeth and gums.

b) More frequent visits to the dentist may be recommended for individuals at higher risk of dental problems, such as those with periodontitis, diabetes, or immune disorders, as well as for smokers or those with poor oral hygiene.

To facilitate the maintenance of good dental health for patients, NORDENTA provides each patient with a reminder message when it is time for their regular preventive check-up. The interval between appointments is individually determined by the treating dentists, based on the patient's needs.

In NORDENTA Dental Practice, we adhere to the principles of minimally invasive techniques for treating diseases of the hard tooth tissues. Early caries diagnosis and prevention contribute to this. We utilize methods of remineralization and identification of the causes of high caries activity.
