Dental Health and Tooth Decay Prevention

Tooth decay happens when our bodies are out of balance. Tooth decay is not caused primarily by germs or bacteria.

Tooth Decay occurs when we eat too many sweet and processed foods, and when we do not eat enough vitamins and minerals, particularly fat-soluble vitamins.

 

The Science Of Conventional Tooth Decay Prevention

Conventional tooth decay prevention is based on the oral hygiene theory of tooth decay prevention. The concept is that if you keep your mouth free and clean of bacteria, your teeth will not decay. If bacteria proliferate, then you will have cavities.

Under this theory, which I do not believe in, the cure for tooth decay resides in keeping your mouth spotlessly clean. Which you will not be able to do.

"Visit your dentist regularly. Get professional tooth cleanings and regular oral exams, which can help prevent problems or spot them early. Your dentist can recommend a schedule that's best for your situation."

It is true that the dentist can spot cavities early. And it is a good idea to be aware of your tooth health. But what is also true is that exploring the teeth with a metal explorer can damage the enamel structure.

"Ask about antibacterial treatments. Some people are especially vulnerable to tooth decay, because of medical conditions, for instance. In these cases, your dentist may recommend special mouth rinses or other antibacterial treatments to cut down on harmful bacteria in your mouth."

Anti-bacterial treatments do not stop tooth cavities. They never work because bacteria are not the cause of tooth cavities. If it were so simple you could wash your mouth out with soap a few times per day and never have cavities again.

The Science of Real Tooth Decay Prevention

The type of tooth decay prevention discussed in the book, "Cure Tooth Decay," focuses on preventing tooth cavities with diet. This principally follows the idea that a healthy tooth does not decay. Whether the tooth is hygenically clean or not is secondary to the density of tooth enamel.

Therefore a weak tooth decays easily, while a strong tooth resists decay indefinitely. Strong teeth are produced by a strong body. This requires health and a good clean diet of real foods.
