There are many simple ways to prevent cavities. One great way is to use fluoride because it helps prevent cavities by slowing down the breakdown of enamel. It also can speed up the process mineralization in the teeth. The new enamel crystals that form are harder, larger and more resistant to acid. Common fluoride sources are fluoridated drinking water, toothpaste and some mouth rinses. Inform your dentist is your drinking water is not fluoridated. Your dentist may recommend fluoride treatments.
