Dental Caries (Tooth Decay)

Some factors that may increase a person’s risk of developing caries include the following:

     Poor oral hygiene

     Active caries

     Eating disorders

     Drug or alcohol abuse

     Lack of regular professional dental care

     Active orthodontic treatment combined with poor oral hygiene     

     High levels of caries-causing bacteria in the mouth

     Exposed root surfaces of teeth

     Decreased salivary flow, resulting in dry mouth

     Poor diet

     Existing restorations (fillings)

     Tooth enamel defects

     Undergoing head and neck radiation therapy.

Although each patient's case is different, Dr. Ebrahimi DDS recommends professional fluoride treatment every 4 to 6 months for patients who are in high risk of developing tooth decay. Fluoride treatment can also be done at home on a daily bases using toothpaste with fluoride and/or fluoride rinses to prevent tooth decay.
