While some people believe that ignoring their dental health is no big deal, this is simply untrue. There are a variety of conditions that gum disease and tooth decay have been associated with breast cancer and diabetes. Recently, MSN reported that 92 percent of adults in the U.S. have cavities in their permanent teeth, and the news source offered some information on this common dental problem.
MSN stated that bacteria in the mouth turn food that a person doesn't brush or floss away into acid.
"The acid and bacteria join forces with the remaining food and saliva to form plaque, a sticky substance that, if not ejected from the playing field of your teeth, will kick off the process of tooth decay," according to the news provider.
WebMD states that some of the foods that are most likely to cause cavities are bread, milk, cereal, soda, fruit and candy. Brushing immediately after eating these substances and visiting the dentist regularly can help reduce an individuals chances of having tooth decay.
