Dental caries bacteria is something that everyone should be aware to avoid not only various dental problems but also other issues.
Dental cavities cause discomfort, problems eating, and require medical treatment.
Many people have heard that you shouldn’t eat many sweets because they are bad for your teeth and you should also clean your teeth properly. But is it possible that dental cavities also have something to do with bacteria? Officially, in the mouth, there are around “200 to 300 bacterial species, but only a limited number of these species participate in dental decay (caries) or periodontal disease.” Some of these bacteria release acid that is not good for tooth and is a part of the dental plaque. The acid goes through the hard enamel that surrounds the tooth and grows more inside. That leads to cavities and infection.
When cleaning teeth, these bacteria wash away, but that requires constant and very attentive care. In simple words, dental cavities and bacteria have a connection that is possible to absorb as people with healthy teeth have different bacteria than the ones with cavities. You can buy mouthwash in supermarkets that say that kills up to 98% of germs in the mouth, but that doesn’t mean that it kills all the ones that can cause cavities. In the future, it would be good to see this kind of mouthwash that does.
WAYS HOW TO PROTECT FROM DENTAL CAVITIES:
- Cut down sugar consumption
- Brush teeth twice a day with a tested toothpaste and other products (mouthwash, dental floss, etc.)
- Treat any inflammation
- Use fluoride in water (it can help to prevent caries by 30-50%)
- Professional cleaning by a dentist
Teeth, bacteria treatment is not easy and not always guaranteed that it will work – some people might have a different result than others.
The main cause of plague and cavities is Streptococcus mutans bacteria. Bacteria in the plague causes a tooth to lose its minerals. This problem also has to do with low pH that prevents from normalizing the mineral level. Caries becomes painful once it reaches the tooth pulp.
A more serious problem is a periodontal disease “the gums detach from the teeth as a result of an inflammatory response to the plaque.” The cause can be different bacteria like Treponema denticola and Porphyromonas gingivali. The whole process is complicated, and that’s why it is hard to name one bacteria that causes gingivitis or some other tooth problems. Chen Ben Asher, a Board-certified nutritionist, suggests choosing the right diet, dental care, treatment of inflammation and other problems.
