The right brushing technique is more important than the frequency of the brushing.... you do have good oral hygiene practices as you explained but nonetheless some studies have also linked a genetic predisposition to dental cavities and gum diseases.... all you need to do is get the cavities that have already occurred treated adequately before they progress further and cause major symptoms to you..... and also go for a regular 6 month checkup to prevent further cavities in the future.... your dentist can also guide you about the best brushing technique so that cavities can be avoided in the future.....
Overbrushing is also bad in long run... it abrades your teeth.
A visit for routine check up and cleaning should suffice every 6 months
Remember the saying "too much care killed the cat"
Regarding other people- different oral conditions exist so you cannot compare decay rates on just mere observation
Mam,Get regular check up and professional cleaning done every 6 months.Also use a floss,which is as important as brushing and learn the proper brushing technique.You should do just fine.Regards,DR Suman Makam,Dental Arts,Jayanagar,Bangalore
Unfortunately the number of times you brush isn't enough. The technique of brushing is important. Visit your dentist to make sure your brushing technique is proper
Also, some mouthwashes tend to have alcohol, whch dry out the mouth, so while they provide temporary freshness, they might cause cavities in the long run.
Make sure you get routinely 6-12 monthly cleanings from your dentist to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy. Professional care is required to maintain healthy teeth.
And lastly, unfortunately some genetic pattern in teeth does play a role. Also, the quality of your saliva and food you eat. There isn't much you can do about these except a regular maintenance schedule on your part.
Don't compare your teeth to others, they may be having other problems which you are spared of.
Number of time u brush is not enough but brushing technique is very important or also change your brush in every 3month .there are lot of factors for teeth decayed .dry mouth,improperly brushing technique,low calcium, eating high acidic food or eat between two meal,high sweet food eating ,etc...
Please visiting dental clinic for resolving your problem
...and u visiting dental clinic every 6month
Thank u ...
