How Does Sugar Affect Your Dental Health?
Posted on 11/10/2019 by Office
Everyone is aware that eating too much sugar has the potential of leading to dental problems, but only some are familiar of precisely how that takes place. In most instances, the sugar does not directly cause the damage to your teeth. Instead, it is the damage caused when the bacteria eat that sugar and produces acid in its place. There are some things that can be done to help prevent tooth decay from taking over your teeth, thankfully. How You End Up In Our Office With CavitiesIt's speculated that the mouth has as much as a million bacteria at any given time. Most help the mouth keep a healthy balance. The problem is that these bacteria love sugar even more than you do. It is their main food. They eat the sugar and produce acid as a byproduct. This acid eats your tooth enamel away, leaving holes that can lead directly to cavities and decay. If you do not seek out dental treatment, your cavities can grow into large problems that can affect your teeth, gums, and even your body as a whole. The Continuing Battle Against Your TeethUnderstanding the process can help you protect your teeth on a deeper level. The constant process of sugar leading to acid can leave your teeth in harm's way. By protecting your teeth, you can prevent tooth decay and the other issues that sugars indirectly lead to. By eating a healthy diet and limiting sugars, you can help your teeth remineralize, which can help to make the enamel you have left on your teeth, a bit stronger. If you have let up on your oral care, odds are, you are going to have some weak spots. Our office can assist in protecting and cleaning your teeth to repair breaks in the enamel. When caught early enough, we can repair the decay. Call us today to schedule an appointment....
