decay in teeth begins, there’s usually a slippery slope effect that makes the
correction challenging to achieve. The
causes of decay are numerous, but the main culprit is the presence of bacteria
in your mouth. Sugar based foods are
where the bacteria growth begins. When the bacteria uses that “sugary” food to
live and reproduce, that acid is produced from the bacteria that is able to dissolve
the enamel layer of the tooth.
high in carbohydrates is a source of sugar based material. Anytime carbohydrates are decompressed to
lower material, simple sugars like glucose and fructose is produced. Most carbohydrates are eventually is decompressed
to simple sugars that include glucose and fructose. Foods that break down into simple sugars in
the mouth are called “fermentable carbohydrates” and are not limited to cakes,
candy, and cokes.
acids that are produced begin to eat at and dissolve the material of the
teeth. As you eat more food, your teeth
is exposed that much more to a potential acid attack. It is that acid attack that leads to tooth
decay. By dissolving the calcium and phosphates
inside the mouth, the acid attack leads to the weakening of the teeth
themselves. The loss of the minerals
develops beneath the surface of the enamel even though the surface may still be
treatment is one way to repair the damage from acid attack if caught in the
earlier strategies. But once the decay
breaks through the enamel to cause a cavity, that damage is permanent.
