Three Ways Your Dentist Can Save Your Life. (Three)


Excessive acid in the mouth can lead to more cavities. You can do an a home test with a pH strip (ask us for it, or buy one in most drugstores): A reading lower than 6.5 indicates unhealthy levels of mouth acid found in your saliva. Tooth enamel will dissolve at a pH of 5.5. To balance out pH levels, increase your calcium, magnesium, and potassium intake and brush with a pH-neutral toothpaste, which won’t cure the problem but will minimize the damage. We can treat the problem with minimally invasive dentistry including dental sealants.
