Nutrition Issues

  • High sugar diet is one of the major factors in tooth decay, but it isn’t the only factor.
  • Acid bacterial waste after the bacteria eat sugar, is actually how sugar contributes to decay.
  • Acidic foods can also cause tooth decay and enamel erosion.
  • Lots of foods, like crackers, bread, medicines, have hidden sugar.
  • Foods that stay on the teeth longer are more of a risk.
  • The duration of which you are exposing your teeth to is also very important. It takes about 4 hours for your mouth to return to neutral after a sugary or acidic food.
  • As a result, if you are constantly snacking on high carbohydrate or high acid foods or drinks, you are very prone for getting cavities.
