Tooth decay occurs because of building up of plaque acids on your teeth. After every meal or snack, bacteria in the mouth start working and they accelerate their process in carbohydrates and sugary medium. The bacteria feed on them and form acids. For reducing plaque, limit sugary food and drinks or at least swish with water and brush your teeth after having sweets. Plaque acids build up quickly, within 20 minutes after eating, and can be destructive to your dental health. Try to reduce sweets and include more protein rich food in your diet. Have vegetables at lunch and dinner, and fruits at breakfast or for a snack. This is not only good for dental health but for overall health and proper functioning of body. A diet that is rich in vitamins, minerals, fresh fruits, and vegetables can help prevent gum diseases.
