To remineralize your teeth and arrest the early signs of decay, you may follow these steps ,remembering that prevention is always better than cure:
- Cut down on sugar
- Eat teeth friendly foods: Fibrous vegetables and fruits – cheese,yogurt and other dairy products – green or black tea
- Chew sugar-free gum: Increases saliva flow.Saliva helps kill bacteria and contains proteins and minerals to protect tooth enamel and prevent decay, gum disease and bad breath.
- Good oral hygiene : Brushing at least twice daily and flossing regularly ,help remove the plaque that feeds acid-producing bacteria.
- Use a fluoride toothpaste and mouth rinse: Fluoride is a mineral that not only prevents tooth decay but also reverses it in early stages.
