Diet is one of the key contributing factors associated with Dental Decay.
The bacteria in our mouth feed on sugars in our diet. This results in the production of an acid which dissolves tooth structure, otherwise known as Dental Decay. When we eat foods that contain sugars our teeth are susceptible to Dental Decay for a number of hours following.
A persistent poor diet increases the amount of time sugars are in contact with our teeth, and after a certain period of time, our teeth will decay.
