As per dental experts, tooth decay is caused by the carbohydrates including starch and sugar that are left on teeth. These carbs are generally found in cakes, raisins, candy, milk, and pop. Bacteria in the mouth grow on these foods and produce acids. Gradually, these acids damage tooth enamel that leads to tooth decay.
Tooth decay can also be caused by the absence of minerals, Vitamins A, D, E, & K in daily diet. Other causes include excessive intake of sugar and foods with Phytic Acid. You can easily deal with these causes with the help of a slight change in diet and some important add-on’s.
Besides brushing and flossing on a daily basis, the following are the hacks you should know and implement to prevent or cure tooth decay.
Remove Sugar from Diet
Be a little strict with yourself and sacrifice your love for sugar-containing foods. When it comes to curing tooth decay, sugar needs to be removed from your diet. Due to sugar, oral bacteria prevent the healthy flow of dental fluids. Moreover, sugar is excessively acidic and demineralizes or decalcifies the content that is responsible for teeth structure. As a result, you suffer dental decay. Be firm today to stay away from candy, soda, and other sugary foods. You can instead use excellent alternatives to sugar like maple syrup, dates, raw honey, and juices. Artificial sweeteners are equally dangerous not for tooth only but for entire health. Stick to stevia to sate your appetite for sweets.
Include Nutrients and Raw Dairy to Your Diet
Laden with minerals, Vitamin K2 and D3, magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus, raw dairy greatly helps you combat tooth decay. It keeps a healthy flow of dental fluid and hence helps you maintain healthy teeth. Raw cheese and goat’s milk are among nicest options.
Remove Phytic Acid
As mentioned above that too much amount of Phytic Acid results in tooth decay, you need to remove it from the diet. Phytic Acid blocks minerals and inhibits enzyme present in nuts, beans, grains, and seeds. It leads to severe issues in the body. It results in nutrient deficiency, digestion issues, lack of appetite, and dental decay. In order to deal with it, consume GMO-free and organic food. Nuts, beans, soy, and grains have Phytic Acid in large amount, avoid them. Nonetheless, these foods when soaked and sprouted or fermented reduce a good amount of Phytic Acid.
Toothpaste with no Fluoride
You can mineralize your toothpaste. There are brands that offer toothpaste with no fluoride, use it to deal with tooth decay. Or if you find it an expensive solution, make it at home by using coconut oil, stevia, baking soda, magnesium or calcium powder, peppermint or clove oil. There you go!
Rock Salt with Mustard Oil
Last but not least, the easiest remedy is to make a paste with rock salt and mustard oil and massage the teeth.
