Your teeth are one of your greatest assets. You need your teeth to eat and chew properly, to speak properly, to smile, and to uphold the structure of your facial features. Yet, with the absolute necessity of your teeth, many people still neglect them.

Cavity prevention is one of the most important aspects of your entire health. Please note that your entire health hangs in the balance of your oral health. It takes an active role to achieve and sustain a healthy smile, but it truly does not require much. By following the 5 simple steps below, cavity prevention is easy.

  • Floss daily. Floss is the only tool designed to scrape away plaque from the teeth. Plaque is loaded with acid-producing bacteria that eat holes in the teeth: known as cavities. Flossing is the most neglected oral hygiene habit – yet it is the most important thing you can do for your teeth on a daily basis.
  • Brush frequently. Brushing your teeth loosens plaque from the surface of the teeth so that it can easily be removed via flossing. Brushing also helps to loosen food particles that have become trapped in the teeth so they do not decay and rot inside your mouth.
  • Visit your dentist regularly. It is important to have your teeth thoroughly cleaned and examined on a regular basis to prevent tartar buildup, gingivitis, decay. Regular dental visits also allow your dentist to examine your mouth for any signs of disease that may go unnoticed until they are in a severe stage.
  • Keep a healthy diet. The foods and beverages you consume have a direct impact on every area of your health. Consuming too much sugar, acid, or alcohol will have a negative impact on the strength of your teeth, the health of your gums, your immune system, and your heart. It is vital to understand that your oral health directly impacts your entire body, and what you put into your mouth affects everything about your quality of life.
  • Stop all negative lifestyle habits. Smoking, chewing tobacco, over-consuming alcohol, biting your nails, using your teeth to open things, clenching your jaw, grinding your teeth – all of these negatively impact your oral and overall health. If you need help stopping negative lifestyle habits, speak to your dentist.

That is it. Truly, these 5 simple steps can protect your oral health and allow you to maintain a healthy and beautiful smile for a lifetime. Gold Hill Dentistry wants to partner with you. Please contact our practice today.

4.4 / 5.0

Based on 97 reviews


"When I moved I tried another dental practice. Mistake. Now I drive an hour to still use Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone from the administrative staff to the dentist are professional, kind, and good at what they do."


"This was my first appointment with Gold Hill Dentistry so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. However prior to my visit I did google their reviews which were exceptional. That being said, my first visit certainly align with their online reviews! Gold Hill Dentistry’s staff were warm, professional but personable, and they made me feel very comfortable from the moment I entered their office and throughout the entire time services were performed. My cleaning results were great and my teeth and gums felt wonderful! I look forward to a long relationship with Gold Hill Dentistry!"


"As soon as you walk in you are greeted like family. Very clean, homie feeling office. Staff and Dr. Setty super friendly, kind and professional."


"Gold Hill Dentistry is the absolute best! From the front desk, to the hygienists, to the doctor, they were all great. They bent over backwards to accommodate my special health situation and urgent scheduling needs. And the drilling/filling they did was the quickest and most painless I've ever had. Don't think twice about making them your new go-to for dental work."


"Office Staff, dental hygienists, and the dentists are all wonderful. Always friendly, helpful, professional and excellent. With so many "doc in the box" dental centers popping up, Gold Hill is a welcome exception where personal service and attention matter. (I should mention too, that the service does not come at premium cost - they take insurance and their rates are competitive and reasonable). Highly recommend Gold Hill Dentistry."


"I really like Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone is very very friendly and helpful. They are really concerned about your care."
