What food we take and how we process them will result in a better-fed and healthier body. Dental caries (tooth decay), the most common disorder affecting the teeth, is an infectious transmissible disease where acids produced by bacteria dissolve the teeth.
  • 2. www.sonoranhillsdental.com Chandler Dentistry info@sonoranhillsdental.com The Proper Way To Chew and Swallow The Food You EatYour Dentists in Maricopa Will Tell You Certain Bacteria Certain bacteria can be transmitted for example from parents to children. These bacteria are cariogenic, which means tooth decay-causing. They first form a film around the surface of our teeth, known as dental plaque. Bacteria in dental plaque use fermentable carbohydrates like sugar and other carbohydrates from food and drink that we consume. Once fermented, the acids formed would dissolve minerals such as calcium and phosphate from the tooth.

Our saliva clears food debris from the mouth, it helps neutralize acids produced from plaque bacteria and provides calcium and phosphate to the teeth. Decay varies between different teeth within one person's mouth. Your dentist is the only person to determine this. Since even the shape of the jaw and oral cavity, tooth structure and the quantity and quality of saliva are all important in determining why some teeth are simply more susceptible to decay than others.
  • 4. www.sonoranhillsdental.com Chandler Dentistry info@sonoranhillsdental.com The Proper Way To Chew and Swallow The Food You EatYour Dentists in Maricopa Will Tell You Good oral hygiene hygiene (regularly seeing your dentist) and the use of fluoride are now considered the main factors responsible for preventing tooth decay and promoting good oral health. The following advice is also important for keeping you free from tooth decay (and other oral problem) : •Start early - remove feeding bottle from baby’s mouth once they are asleep. The sweet liquids pool around the baby's teeth for long periods of time and can lead to "baby bottle tooth decay". •Brush teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. •Visit your dentist about every 6 months for a check-up. •Do not nibble food or sip drinks continuously. •Use fluoride mouthwashes and sugar-free chewing gum after taking acidic food or drinks. Dental professionals play an essential role in monitoring dental health and treating or preventing any problems. Access to good dental care, including regular check-ups is vital.
