What is odontotherapy?
Representing the destruction of dental structures, namely tooth enamel and dentition, tooth decay is the most common non-spreadable disease.
The cause of caries is represented by the action of harmful bacteria that in favourable conditions (poor hygiene, humidity, heat) will produce acids capable of demineralizing and weakening the resistance of these tissues. If left untreated, in time, the condition can lead to infections or even loss of the infected tooth.
The first signs of caries are dental pain, sensitivity to cold, hot or sweet, bad breath, black, grey or brown stains on the surface of the affected teeth.
Prevention of caries
- Brushing at least two times a day for 2 minutes
- Proper oral hygiene with the use of dental floss or mouthwash
- Regular check-ups at the dentist (once every six months)
