Teeth decay for five basic reasons: You won't hear the dentist tell you this, but the true cause of tooth decay is acid-producing bacteria!Here are some basic reasons teeth decay:
bacteria - Dentists don't often explain that the main reason teeth decay is bacteria, which thrive on the carbohydrates you consume. Bacteria causes tooth decay, not sugar. You should never share drinks or utensils with your children, or you will give them your bacteria!
plaque - most common thing the dentist will tell you is the reason for tooth decay, but plaque is actually a symptom and not the cause. Plaque is a buildup of bacteria.
acid - acids in the foods you eat degrade your teeth. Eating celery help you neutralize plaque-causing acids.
fluoride - Your dentist told you that fluoride is good for your teeth, but people are awakening that it is really just the opposite. Fluoride is not only a neurotoxin, but it causes fluoridosis! Learn how and why to avoid fluoride.
