Do we know what happens to our teeth after we eat?
Food and bacteria together cause our tooth to decay. A sticky substance containing bacteria is always forming on our teeth and gum. When we eat, these bacteria make acids. This acids attack the teeth for 20 minutes or more after eating. Over a period of time, these acids destroy tooth enamel, resulting in tooth decay, tooth loss .
If this tooth decay is faster than what our tooth can repair then these bacteria causes tremendous pain, infection and may spread to different parts of our body, and in some cases may even cause death.
We can easily prevent tooth decay by brushing and flossing your teeth regularly i.e keeping our tooth clean as soon as we eat. If the tooth damage is too much then we need to go to the dentist and do teeth feeling or root canal.
