  • Fast Food, Snacking And Tooth Decay

    American eating habits have changed. We are no longer a three-meals-a-day society. The fast food industry is at $200 billion a year and growing. We eat more premade foods and snacks throughout the day than ever before. More sugar, more acid, increased frequency, and less time to produce saliva during eating leads to more tooth decay.

    Q: What is tooth decay?
    A: Tooth decay (dental caries) is a bacterial disease. Everyone has bacteria in their mouth, which cause caries. These bacteria form a plaque on teeth (sticky bacterial biofilms). Sugar from the diet is turned into acid by these bacteria, which causes decalcification of the tooth, destroys the tooth enamel and allows decay to...
