It might come as a surprise to you that despite practicing a proper oral hygiene routine, you may still get a cavity. There are a lot of reasons because of which a cavity can manifest out of nowhere. Most of the times, the smallest change in your daily routine can be the cause.
- Physical Variables
The small changes in your routine may not seem to have extreme effects on your teeth and gums, but it can drastically change your approach towards dental hygiene without coming to your notice. Like for example, stress is a potent reason and an agent in causing all sorts of negative effects throughout your body. When you are stressed or depressed, you can suffer from dry mouth, which can cause dehydration. Excessive exercise can have similar negative effects and cause dry mouth.
- Food, Diet, and Medicine
It is obvious if your diet includes an excess of candies, sweets, and sodas, you can ruin your dental health even if you brush and floss regularly. If you consume food or drink that is high in acid, then it can lead to a cavity, too. Some examples of common problem creators are citrus and tropical fruits, tomato sauce, and sports drinks. You should also keep an eye on any new medicines or cough syrups that you are using, some over-the-counter medications do have high sugar content, too.
Chemotherapy treatment can also result in dry mouth.
