Tooth Decay









Tooth decay is primarily driven by the symbiotic relationship between bacteria and acidity, which creates a pathogenic bioflora in your mouth. If you’re  continually lowering the pH in your mouth, you start losing calcium, which is necessary for strong healthy teeth.

Calcium deficiency leads to porosity in the teeth, which allows plaque that has turned pathogenic to attack the tooth more thoroughly. Once certain types of  bacteria are able to penetrate the enamel, they put out enzymes that begin to break down the  collagen of the inner structure of the tooth.

Ways to prevent tooth decay:

One of the most important things you can do is to use nothing but baking soda on your teeth at night—brush with it and use it as a mouth rinse.

 In the mornings, you could use a natural toothpaste containing calcium and phosphate salts, or even hydroxyapatite, which can help remineralize your teeth.
