At-Home Care for Tooth Fillings

Posted by Dr. Alicia Abeyta DDS FAGD on Jan 10 2013, 12:11 AM

After you receive a tooth filling, there are some things you can do to help reduce the possibility of developing a cavity in your tooth.

1. Practice Good Oral Hygiene

To help prevent tooth decay, you should brush your teeth after meals, floss at least once a day, and use a fluoride mouthwash.

2. Avoid Acidic and Sugary Foods

Avoid eating acidic or sugary foods, as these can damage tooth enamel.

3. Avoid Tobacco Products

Cigarette smoking and chewing tobacco can both cause oral cancer, gum disease, and tooth decay.

4. See Your Dentist Regularly

Regular appointments with your dentist can help prevent cavities and other dental problems.
