Tooth decay is one of the more common dental concerns that many hear about, and is certainly one that is kept in mind as a reason to stay on top of your preventive care at home coupled with attending routine examinations and cleanings. Another factor to take into consideration is your diet, as a variety of foods contain harmful acids or sugars that can cause oral bacteria to soften your tooth’s structure at a faster rate. Indeed, decay can range from minor instances such as a cavity to major ones that may result in tooth loss, which is why your Astoria, NY dentist at Jeffrey Leibowitz, DDS encourages you to be proactive about these concerns and reinforce your smile with a filling.
