Home Remedies To Get Rid Of Cavities

Remember how as children we were constantly rebuked for eating too many sweets or chocolates and were always reminded to brush our teeth before sleeping as well? All this effort was put because our parents did not want us to develop cavities and tooth decay. Cavities and tooth decay are the most common oral health problems. Cavities are seen mostly among children and aged people. However, it can occur to anyone. A dental cavity is a tiny hole in the teeth that can lead to tooth decay. The cavity is caused by the bacteria on the surface of the teeth that creates acid out of sugar. The bacteria form a plaque which is sticky in nature. This plaque releases acid that removes all minerals present on the enamel. This erosion causes tiny holes in the enamel. Once the acid spreads underneath the enamel, it causes the cavity.

Brushing your teeth twice a day – once after waking up and once before sleeping- is the ideal way to not only get rid of cavities but is also good for general dental health. You should also rinse your mouth after eating anything.
