Checking the condition of the tooth

You have probably heard of dental cavities, and perhaps you have had a cavity filled before. Dental cavities occur when there is a breakdown of the outer, calcified enamel of the tooth by bacteria inside the mouth. Most cavities generally refer to small holes in top surfaces of the teeth, where sugar particles and bacteria are easily trapped. However, a lesser-known type of cavity is called “interproximal cavities” or flossing cavities. These are cavities that occur between the teeth, in the tight spaces where your teeth come together. The most important thing to know about flossing cavities is that they are 100% preventable.

When it comes to your oral health, you are both the problem and the solution. If you have a mouth full of cavities, it is almost entirely because of your diet and oral hygiene habits (or lack thereof). While that may sound harsh, sometimes the truth hurts. Yet! You are also the solution to most of your problems in life – including your dental issues. By limiting sugar intake and flossing regularly, you can prevent flossing cavities from ruining your smile.

Using dental floss every day, or investing in a Waterpik flosser, will remove damaging bacteria from the tight spaces between your teeth. You can brush your teeth every morning, after every meal during the day, and again before bed, but a toothbrush is not designed to clean in between the teeth. A toothbrush is designed to clean the outer surfaces of the teeth and remove plaque that builds up throughout the day. Yet, if you rely on brushing to keep your teeth clean, you are not cleaning the entire parts of your teeth. Dental floss, or a tool like a Waterpik, can reach the tight squeezes between your teeth. These tools are designed to remove food particles, bacteria, and plaque that becomes trapped between the teeth. Without the removal of these particles, flossing cavities can damage your teeth permanently.

I am proud to give Mansouri Family Dental Care a 5 star review. They have built a beautiful facility in Marietta. Nicola always cleans my teeth. I would give her more that 5 stars if that was an option. I know I get personal attention and an excellent cleaning. Thank you Nicola.

Nate M.

What a wonderful dental care team! They took great care of my wife and I, and even gave great accommodations for my wife who is very scared of the dentist. They were very transparent with billing and answered all our medical questions clearly and quickly.

I’m very pleased with this practice. I’ve been a patient there for a few years and I really trust Dr Mansouri’s diagnosis and treatment. I was having a lot issues with my jaw and teeth and he told me exactly the treatment I needed and now finally my issue was resolved. I also love Nicola my hygienist. She is very thorough with my cleaning. I highly recommend this practice!!!
