Dental caries Toothbrushes and toothpaste for healthy teeth and gums
The teeth are covered by an outer hard layer called enamel. Every day, a thin layer of bacteria called dental plaque is formed on the teeth. The bacteria in the dental plaque produce that they can begin to damage the enamel. With the passage of time, acids can create holes in the enamel. These gaps are known as cavities. Brushing and flossing can protect against tooth decay, but once tooth decay is formed, a dentist has to repair the damage.

You can protect your teeth against tooth decay by using fluoride toothpaste. If you have a higher risk of developing tooth decay (for example, if your mouth is dry from the medications you take), you may need more fluoride. Your dentist or dental hygienist can give fluoride treatment during a visit to the office or the dentist may suggest that you use a fluoride gel or mouthwash in a home.
