Dental Health Month 2020 - Sugar and its effect on teeth

 

When harmful factors outweigh those that protect the teeth, then tooth decay can form.

• Certain mouth bacteria that live on the surface of teeth consume the sugar we eat and turn it into acid.
• The acid sits on the surface of the teeth and pulls minerals out from the tooth’s surface causing it to weaken.
• This process happens every time we eat or drink.
• If these acid attacks occur over and over again and there is not enough protection provided to the teeth, this can result in tooth decay.
