The acid in our mouth can destroy the layers surrounding the teeth. Each tooth is made of 4 layers. Thus, when these layers are dissolved, cavity appears. As the decay gets larger, several symptoms may appear. Some of the symptoms are:
– Tooth sensitivity
– Spots on the teeth
– Pain while eating
– Visible holes in the teeth
– Sensitivity to hot or cold food
These symptoms can be eliminated by going to the dentist’s office and filling the cavities. However, there is a new possible method for eliminating these symptoms and filling cavities without drilling.
FILLING CAVITY WITHOUT DRILLING
A new paste was developed by researchers led by Kazue Yamagishi, DMD, from Japan’s FAP Dental Institute. This paste is similar to the tooth enamel, which is the first tooth layer. This paste is able to fill cavities without drilling and reduce further decay. However, this paste should be used in the first stages of decay only.
The paste contains acid and hydrogen peroxide. Therefore, it can cause gum inflammation when not used properly. Consult your dentist before using it at home.
IS THIS PASTE AVAILABLE?
This paste should be available any time now. However, only dentists will be able to distribute it to their patients. It could be a while before your dentist stocks the paste. The cavity will be filled in no time and in less than 20 minutes the paste gives effect.
HOW TO PREVENT TOOTH DECAY?
For the time being, you should improve your diet by consuming healthy food and getting regular dental care. The good oral hygiene is essential for the prevention of cavity. Therefore, brush your teeth regularly and use anti-bacterial fluids. Moreover, you can even try some alternative methods, such as oil pulling.
Additionally, the diet influences your oral health. Increase the mineral intake by consuming foods with more minerals. Your teeth will be healthier and their decay will be reduced.
