  7. 7. What is a cavity? A cavity is a small hole in a tooth, also known as tooth decay. When your teeth decay, they lose their strength. The decay can spread throughout your tooth. Cavities
  8. 8. Cavities What causes cavities? One thing that plays a big part in causing cavities is plaque. Plaque is a sticky, clear film that forms on your teeth 24 hours a day. Bacteria in plaque make acid that attacks tooth enamel -- the hard outer layer of each tooth. The stickiness of plaque keeps the harmful acids against the teeth. The acid breaks down tooth enamel and forms a cavity. Repeated acid attacks make cavities grow bigger.
  9. 9. Cavities Cavities do not go away by themselves. Only a dentist can fix a cavity, by removing the decay and filling the hole.
  10. 10. Gum Disease Gingivitis If plaque is not removed with daily brushing and cleaning between teeth with floss, it hardens into tartar. Tartar must be removed, because it makes your teeth harder to clean. If tartar is not removed, it can lead to gingivitis, an early form of gum disease. Gingivitis means inflamed gums.
  11. 11. Gum Disease <ul><li>Signs of gingivitis : </li></ul><ul><li>Gums that bleed easily </li></ul><ul><li>Bright red gums </li></ul><ul><li>Gums are tender to touch </li></ul><ul><li>Mouth sores </li></ul><ul><li>Swollen gums </li></ul><ul><li>Gums look shiny </li></ul>
  12. 12. Gum Disease Periodontitis If not treated, gingivitis can lead to periodontitis . Periodontitis is when infection spreads from the gums to the tissues and bones that support the teeth. In time, teeth become loose and fall out.

  23. 23. Take Good Care of Teeth Proper Brushing Brushing cleans food and plaque off teeth and fights the acid that causes cavities.

  35. 35. Good Eating Habits What you eat and drink, and how often, affects the amount of acid in your mouth. Plaque bacteria turn sugar and starches from food and drinks into acid. Every time you have sugary snacks and drinks, acid attacks your teeth.
  36. 36. Good Eating Habits If you have sweets, eat or drink them with meals, because saliva helps wash acid off your teeth. If you need a snack between meals, choose things like fruit, low-fat cheese, low-fat yogurt, or raw vegetables.
  37. 37. Good Eating Habits It's OK to chew gum for about 20 minutes right after you eat as long as the gum is sugarless. Chewing sugar-free gum helps your mouth make more saliva to rinse acid off your teeth.
  38. 38. Visit the Dentist It is important to see a dentist regularly to be sure your mouth is healthy and to get your teeth cleaned. Even when you brush well, some plaque stays on your teeth. Over time, plaque hardens into tartar. Only a professional cleaning can remove tartar. If tartar is not removed, it can lead to gum disease.
