The amount of fluoride in your toothpaste, your eating habits and your oral regime all contribute to the maintenance of your teeth health. A negligence in any of these areas is likely to lead to Cavity or more commonly known as tooth decay. Of course having any sort of tooth problem that runs in the family can also be inherited, but do not sulk, you surely have ways to avert the possible occurrence of such cavities.
People who lack saliva in their mouth and have a comparatively dry mouth are prone to the risk of forming cavities in their teeth. Often the causes of a dry mouth are some type of tobacco consumption, medication, or even radiation treatment for some other disease. The saliva in the mouth is completely used up in these ways thereby making the mouth excessively dry.
Though we have to start the initial care of our teeth at home but it is often good to visit a dentist once in a while, so as to assure that your up keeping is being helpful or not for the good health of your teeth. Dr. William N. Langstaff DDS is an extremely able dentist, who not only treats minor dental issues but is also capable of performing cosmetic dentistry along with his team at Villa Park Dental Center CA.

Most of the time cavities are developed below the gum, making it difficult to be discovered; it is therefore that you should pay a regular visit to your doctor. The cavities that can be easily seen are the ones which blacken an area of the affected tooth or change the color of it.
Stating or knowing the problem is only half the deed done, the preventive measures that need to be followed are what make oral health care complete. Though there might be several methods available for the treatment of these problems yet it is a truth universally accepted that “prevention is better than cure”.
Among the preventive measures the foremost is the reduction in the consumption of sweets, soda and any aerated drinks. Plaque is readily formed by foods rich in starch and sugar, which is another enemy of the tooth. This is a thin film of bacteria formed on the tooth and failure to get rid of this, gradually leads to the eating up of the tooth by the acid released by these bacteria, finally culminating in the extraction of the tooth.
Dr. William N. Langstaff DDS acquired his D.D.S. in the year 1973 from the Case Western Reserve University and has been gratifying this clinic with his forty years of dedicated service. The clinic at which he practices is also known for their availability in emergencies which is a rare feature. Any queries of the patients are readily and promptly answered by the doctors and their staff, thereby building a great relation with its patients.
So getting that million dollar smile is not difficult at all, you just have to be cautious of taking care of your oral health.
