Cleaning between teeth is key to preventing cavities

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

As children, most people heard that it is important to clean between their teeth. However, this saying is not just a cliché. The fact is that cleaning between the teeth regularly is critically important to preventing cavities and tooth decay. Food typically gets stuck between the teeth. If left there, it can develop into cavities, break down enamel and lead to tooth decay that can be hard to treat later on. This is the reason that dentists recommend flossing daily and using strong tooth brushes that can get between teeth and into hard to reach places.
