Current Tooth Decay Theory (Cure Tour Part V)
Tooth Decay can be a problem for children, teens, adults and the elderly.
The Current Cavity Theory, from the American Dental Association (ADA)
"[P]laque, a sticky film of bacteria, constantly forms on your teeth. When you eat or drink foods containing sugars or starches, the bacteria in plaque produce acids that attack tooth enamel. The stickiness of the plaque keeps these acids in contact with your teeth and after many such attacks, the enamel can break down and a cavity forms."
"Tooth decay is a destruction of the tooth enamel. It occurs when foods containing carbohydrates (sugars and starches) such as milk, pop, raisins, cakes or candy are frequently left on the teeth. Bacteria that live in the mouth thrive on these foods, producing acids as a result. Over a period of time, these acids destroy tooth enamel, resulting in tooth decay."

What ADA Suggests To Do To Prevent Tooth Decay
- Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
- Clean between teeth daily with floss or an interdental cleaner.
- Eat a balanced diet and limit between-meal snacks.
- Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.
- Ask your dentist about dental sealants, a protective plastic coating that can be applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth where decay often starts.
The Problem with the ADA Theory
The problem is this does not work. Cavities continue to increase with age; they are not prevented by these methods.
A vicious cycle is created. The patient tries different things that do not work, and then they are sold more and more dental products.
Not all people have reoccurring tooth decay, but many do.
A growing body of evidence indicates that many types of chemicals are bad for our health, and bad for our children's health. Many dental treatments use these hazardous chemicals, like fluoride or dental sealants. I do not see how putting chemicals on our teeth, or in our bodies, is going to stop a problem caused by a faulty diet and lifestyle.
