It so happens that Cavities (caries, tooth decay, bum teeth) are the most common human disease known to mankind (and probably to animals- friend & foe- also). 97% of mankind has this malady. This "disease" occurs commonly in young children, teenyboppers, and also adults. Actually anyone or anything that has teeth are subject to this condition, including babies. It is actually important to have a visit with the dentist as soon as your pearly whites appear in the mouth.
As we all know, if we ignore the dentist, states Dr. Marks, any cavities we have will get larger and grow deeper into the teeth. This can lead to sensitivity, pain, holes in our teeth, dark staining, tooth loss, dentures- all things we are better off not having.
SO DOES SUGAR CAUSE DECAY......... CLICK TO FINISH
......The longer the sugar remains in contact with your choppers, the more time bacteria, (streptococcus mutans), has to turn the sugar into acids, which eats into the enamel, causing cavities. So it is not really sugar per se that is the problem, it is the amount of time in contact with teeth.
This is why God created dentists, since you generally are not aware of cavities forming until it is to late. Thus the recommendation to see your dentist for cleanings and check ups twice a year, even if you feel fine. If you do have any type of sensitivity- in your teeth or gums, see your dentist immediately. If you would like a consultation, please CONTACT US.
