Hearing “tooth decay” is one of the last things anyone wants to hear in a dentist’s office. Cavities are the first sign of tooth cavities, which can worsen quickly if not fixed properly.
Strange Things About Dental Decay
Lot of people get this sickness.
In contrast to the common cold, still going around, tooth rot doesn’t go away on its own. Tooth cavities can be avoided. But if it gets into one or more teeth, you need to see a doctor to get rid of it.
Babies “Catch” It
For babies, tooth rot is a widespread health problem. Babies don’t have teeth when they are born, but the bacteria that wear down teeth can get into their saliva. Most of the time, saliva transfer comes from family members, like mothers, who are in close physical contact with the baby.
It can kill you.
There are very few situations in which tooth decay can be deadly. The sinuses behind your eyes may become infected if you don’t treat an upper back tooth infection resulting from an oral illness for a long time. It could then spread to the brain, where it can be deadly. It is possible for neglecting tooth decay to be fatal, but this doesn’t happen very often. Tooth decay treatments are easy to find and work very well.
Unusual facts about tooth decay
The information below should be known to anyone who has ever had tooth decay:
- Tooth Decay is one of the most common illnesses, even more common than the common cold.
- Microorganisms that make acid cause tooth decay, which is a contagious process. Our lab has a simple test for specific bacterial activity that we can use to see how easily your material breaks down.
- Tooth decay can only happen if you eat a lot of refined carbohydrates and sugars, have teeth that are easily damaged, and have bacteria that make acid.
- Bacteria that cause tooth decay are not in babies’ jaws when they are born. Moms, family members, or caregivers instead spread them through saliva.
- Adding fluoride to the teeth structure stops cavities by making the enamel more acidic-resistant.
- Sealants keep microorganisms from building up in places a toothbrush can’t reach by closing the cracks in newly erupted teeth. Studies have shown that teeth covered with adhesives don’t get cavities for six years.
- The total amount of sugar you eat daily, including sugars found in other foods, should be at most 50 grams, about ten cups. A can of fizzy water might have up to six teaspoons of sugar.
