I am getting so many cavities. I brush, floss and use mouth wash. Please tell me how can I prevent cavities in my teeth. How many type of dental floss are available? Which dental floss is better and why? Answer (by Dr. Chirag Semlani): Apart from use of brush, floss, and mouthwash, avoid eating sticky food which stays on teeth for longer time instead eat food which is tooth friendly. Regular dental visit and application of pit and fissure sealant on the caries prone tooth prevent decay from top. Картинки по запросу cavities in teethConsult your dentist for further detail. There are various types of dental floss Depending on the coating there are waxed and unwaxed dental floss. Depending on the shape of thread there are single threaded, braided, and tape like. There are floss with holder which contains a floss on its head and tooth pick on its stalk. These are called flosser or flosspik. Waxed are better than unwaxed, its more convenient to use flosser than a thread as it can also reach the posterior areas of the mouth well.
