I brush everyday, still, I get caries, why?

Sometimes Even though You brush daily you might get Caries that not very uncommon

Since childhood we hear if you brush and floss regularly, you won’t get any cavities, right?
Wrong, general dental hygiene is excellent, but it doesn’t significantly have anything to do with your proclivity for cavities.

Cavities are caused when the bacteria which occurs due to the sugar we consume. When these bacteria chow down on sugar, they can get into existing cracks in our teeth which leads to decay.
So as long as you’re consuming sugar, you are leaving yourself susceptible to cavities.

Here, the question is, Why do you still get cavities while other people never seem to get caries?

Let’s see why?

Below are a few reasons why you still get cavities:

  1. If your teeth are crowded, it’s going to be more arduous to clean, and there’s a possibility that food particles will get stuck in between your teeth and cause cavities.
  2. If there’s the spacing on your teeth, food can get stuck there too.
  3. Maybe the head of your toothbrush is too big, and it didn’t reach the end portion of your mouth.
  4. Flossing once a day is enough, if you floss too much, it could create a space in between teeth which creates a place for food to get stuck into, therefore – cavities occur.
  5. Not getting adequate fluoride. Fluoride in toothpaste is essential, and it hardens the teeth.
  6. When you regularly snack or sip sugary drinks, you give bacteria more fuel to generate acids that strike your teeth and weaken them.
  7. Dry mouth is affected by a lack of saliva, which aids prevent tooth decay by rinsing away food and plaque from your teeth. Materials found in saliva can aid counter the acid generated by bacteria. Several treatments, some medical conditions or specific chemotherapy drugs can inflate your risk of cavities by diminishing saliva production.
  8. Over the years, dental fillings can reduce, begin to break down or develop rough edges. This enables the plaque to build up more promptly, which makes it harder to remove.
  9. Heartburn or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can lead stomach acid to pass into your mouth, wearing away the enamel of your teeth, which can cause significant tooth decay. This exposes more of the dentin to attack by bacteria by treating tooth decay.
  10. Anorexia and bulimia can drive to considerable tooth erosion and cavities. Stomach acid from continuous vomiting washes over the teeth and begins destroying the enamel. Eating disorders also can conflict with saliva production.

We know you are busy and you don’t have enough time to brush or floss after every meal. You strangely don’t have the time to floss multiple times in a day.
Well, if you don’t have the time, then at least use appropriate products like Mouthwash, Gum, and Sweetener which will append strength and aid your battle against tooth decay.

Once you use proper products, you don’t have to panic whenever you visit your dentist’s because you’re afraid of what they’ll find.
