Cavities form when carbohydrates and other food remnants are not removed from the mouth. This can happen overtime and build-up until it develops cavities and other teeth issues that can cause pain and other problems.
Food that remains in the mouth can cause bacteria and infections to happen no only to the teeth but the gums too can get inflamed and act up. This food later becomes acid and does unspeakable things that manifest and breakout over time.
This acid can damage the coating of the teeth and can cause tooth decay. This condition can only go downhill from these if it is not treated correctly and removed completely.
So, before the tooth starts decaying and causes extra problems and issue you can remove cavities and stop infections if you listen and follow these simple steps.
Sugar, processed sugar and candy are really the worst enemy for teeth. Avoid such foods at all costs and even when you do eat something sugary make sure you brush your teeth as soon as you can as sugar remnants in the mouth cause extra damage.
Consume Healthy Foods
Healthier food and cleaner diet can help you fight cavities and protect your teeth from the inside and out. Avocados, coconut oil and raw vegetables can really help in preventing cavities.
Remove Phytic Acid
Omit foods that contain phytic acid like nuts, seeds, legumes, beans and grains. If you cannot omit them take extra care of the teeth when you do eat such foods.
