Why Your Teeth Do Not Like Simple Carbohydrates

Posted on 7/26/2021 by office
Simple carbohydrates are in many foods. They are found naturally in a variety of fruits, milk, and milk products. Simple carbohydrates can also be found in processed and refined sugars like candy, table sugar, syrups, and soft drinks. In addition, simple carbohydrates are also found in starches made with white flour. The body uses these simple carbohydrates quickly and converts them into glucose which is used for energy. Simple carbohydrates are quick fuel for an active body. However, our teeth do not like simple carbohydrates. Damage From Simple Carbohydrates To understand how simple carbohydrates affect your teeth, you have to understand what happens when you eat them. When you eat foods which contain simple carbohydrates, these foods tend to stick to your teeth and linger in your mouth. As they linger they break down into sugar and the bacteria in your mouth eats the sugar off your teeth. The bacteria produce acid as a byproduct which attacks the enamel of your teeth. The enamel, or the hard shiny surface of your tooth, is easily weakened and decalcified by these acidic waste deposits left by the bacteria. Tooth decay is born. Give Our Office a Call If you are reading this and realize that you eat a lot of simple carbohydrates, you are not alone. Fortunately, there are several action steps that you can start today to prevent tooth decay regardless of your diet. First and foremost, establish a good oral hygiene routine. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss before bed. Drink plenty of water. It is also important to prioritize your dental cleanings and exams. Give our office a call to schedule your next appointment. We look forward to working with you to make good choices for the best oral health possible....
