However, whether that’s because it’s quite easy to prevent (it is) or because it can lead to serious problems (it can) may be something you’re not too sure about. The great news is that understanding why you need to avoid this oral health concern (and how to do it) is extremely easy. Let’s see where you stand on your cavity-based knowledge, so you can continue doing what you’re doing or make essential changes to protect your grin.

Quiz Questions: True or False?

  1. True or False: Tooth decay is only a big deal if you overreact when you learn that you have a problem.
  2. True or False: If you want to avoid decay, you’re going to have to spend a lot of time, effort, and money on prevention.
  3. True or False: The main reason it’s so important to address decay when it happens is the fact that it can lead to missing teeth and even an infection.

Quiz Answers

  1. False. The moment decay arrives on the scene, it’s a big deal. Fortunately, it’s easy to take care of. However, if you under-react and neglect it, tooth decay can lead to some very dire consequences for your smile.
  2. False. Preventing decay is very budget-friendly and extremely easy to accomplish. It literally requires around five minutes of your time every day (you need to consistently brush your teeth twice and floss once on a daily basis). You will also need to see us consistently (only twice a year!).
  3. True. You can easily lose your tooth as the result of unchecked decay, infection can occur, and it can harm surrounding tissues. Clearing it with treatment is highly preferable.
