One of the tooth disorders that takes you to a dentist is the tooth decay.
One of the solid reasons of tooth decay is formation of Plaque, A bacteria layer on the surface of the tooth.
Plaque is caused when Decay causing Bacteria attach to the surface of the tooth. They form a thin film over the Tooth Enamel (the hard white shining surface of the teeth).
The bacteria that take refuge in this sticky plaque film over the tooth often release harmful acids that have a bad impact on the tooth.
Through these acids Bacteria are able to cause damage to the tooth enamel and may even cause gum inflammation. These acids almost turn your tooth hollow and weak from inside after which your dentist asks for a filling in your tooth.
Some additions in your food intake may help you reduce the risk of tooth decay. The use of olive oil with salads is often recommended as a remedy to trigger the Formation of Plaque one of the root causes of tooth decay.
Chewing some Bubble Gum or Chewing Gum with Xylitol or Solbitol also helps to reduce the Bacteria Plaque on your tooth surface. Both these components are incompatible for bacteria feed and hence leaves the Bacteria famished.
As a majority of us are familiar that these Bacteria that take refuge in the Plaque, feed on the Food particles trapped within our teeth and gums so if we take a Bubble Gum having Xylitol or Sorbitol then it is harder for the bacteria to cause damage towards our teeth.
Green Tea has a major ingredient polyphenols that cause reduction in plaque formation and stop the cavity forming bacteria from sticking with the teeth.
Polyphenols also fight against oral bacteria and stops them from producing acids that may cause depletion of tooth enamel.
Some Drinks wash the Harmful Bacteria from the mouth hence reduicng their numbers within the mouth.
So maintaining a healthy diet, Cleaning your teeth Twice daily and rinsing your mouth at intervals causes a large relief from the threat of tooth decay and prevents the formation of plaque or Cavity Causing Bacteria to harm the body.
