Dental Cavity Risk Quiz Results

Your risk for cavities is low.


Recommendations

To maintain a low risk for tooth decay, we recommend:

At the dentist's office

  • Visit your dentist regularly (every 6 to 12 months) for an exam and cleaning. Regular dental visits are important even if you don't notice a problem. By the time you notice something is wrong or have pain, the problem could be more serious.

At home

  • Brush at least twice a day for 2-3 minutes with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Floss at least once a day.
  • Limit snacking and avoid sugary foods.
  • Consider using xylitol gum or candy instead of regular gum or candy.
