Reduce the sugar to Prevent Cavities

The little time we often reminded not to eat a lot of candy sweet as it can damage theteeth. This statement is not a mere figment of the thumb. Recent studies in the United Kingdom shows that reducing the consumption of sugar can decrease the risk of tooth decay significantly.

The researchers found that the hole on the gear can continue to widen if manymengasup sugary foods or added sugars on food. In order to keep healthy teeth, it is recommended to reduce sugar consumption is no more than 5 percent per day. This includes reducing the sucrose, glucose, and fructose is added to foods, as well as the sugar contained in the honey, syrup, and fruit.

Head of the Division of nutrition and the promotion of oral health at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, Carole Palmer, said it is not yet known exactly how manysugars that can trigger the risk of damage to the teeth.

Palmer explained, the process of hollow teeth bacteria stick to the teeth from food. The rest of the food accumulates it also became a plaque-plaques in the teeth. When you eat sugar, bacteria appear. Bacteria will then convert the sugar into acids. Levels of acid in this gear will damage the enamel of teeth to decay and cause cavities.

However, the reaction of tooth decay because the sugar will be different when you'redrinking something sweet. If you drink a cup of sweet coffee with a teaspoon of sugaror 10 spoons, tooth decay potential will be the same.

"As long as you are a little drinking and snacking foods, bacteria that can cause decaychanges the sugar into acids, the acid and erode the teeth," said Palmer.

Palmer says, we cannot avoid the intake of sugar. Because, any natural sugars found infoods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. To that end, it was the routinebrushing after meals and before bedtime. We recommend that you do not consumefood or drink throughout the day. Clean your teeth and mouth bacteria-free breed.
