About Preventing Cavities: Tips to Help
Daily oral hygiene that you incorporate into your daily routines is the best way to prevent cavities.
Here are a few tips to prevent cavities approved by your dentist:
- Brush twice daily with fluoride toothpaste and floss at least once per day.

- Schedule regular checkups 1 to 2 times per year with your dentist for routine cleanings.
