Did you know cavities are preventable? There are several kinds of bacteria in your mouth that uses simple carbohydrates like sugars and refined flours to break down about half of a tooth’s minerals away before dental intervention. You can prevent this excessive damage from occurring if you learn how to balance your oral chemistry.
It has been found that the average diet has drastically changed to include more acidic and carbohydrate-laden foods, which cause oral and systemic acidity. Water and milk beverages have been replaced with acidic fruit juices, sports drinks and sodas. Much of our foods are processed and made with acidifiers to reduce bacterial growth so the food lasts longer.
