Transcript

  • 1. Tooth Decay • An understanding on how cavities form in your teeth and the dangers associated with them is an important step in understanding your overall oral health. Preventive dentistry can catch early tooth decay before symptoms occur. • Dr. Kezian and his staff are dedicated to detecting tooth decay early before too much damage is done to your teeth. They use innovative technology that allows early detection and conservative treatments.www.drkezian.com
  • 2. Tooth Decay • Tooth decay simply means the destruction of your tooth structure. This usually occurs when you eat foods containing carbohydrates like bread, fruits and even candy. • Bacteria that normally reside in your mouth digest the carbohydrates into acids. The acids and leftover food particles combine to form plaque that stick to the enamel or outside layer of your teeth. The acids keep working and eventually eat through the enamel and begin to attack the dentin or inner layer of your teeth. Once this happens, you have a cavity.www.drkezian.com
  • 3. Tooth Decay • What happens if tooth decay is not stopped? A cavity can continue to grow through the tooth layers, through the enamel and dentin, right into the tooth pulp. • The tooth pulp is the living part of the tooth with nerves and blood vessels. Once this occurs, simple acts of chewing can result in significant pain and discomfort.www.drkezian.com
  • 4. Tooth Decay • Routine brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash are what you can do at home to prevent bacterial overgrowth and plaque build-up. • Combine that with routine dental check-ups, and you are well on your way to great oral health Los Angeles.www.drkezian.com
