Let’s talk about tooth decay and how to prevent cavities naturally.
Sugary food left on your teeth is food for bacteria that thrive on the sugar and make acids, leading to tooth decay.
According to the American Dental Association, to prevent tooth decay in children and adults, you need to:
• Brush twice a day
• Floss your teeth once a day
• See the dentist on a regular basis
• Limit snacking
• Consume a well-balanced diet
• Use fluoride and dental sealants (plastic coating)
• Keep added sugar to a minimum
What is a “balanced diet?” In many cases, this means including grains or starches in your diet. Diets that include sugar, grains, and starch can lead to cavities.
There is an enzyme in your mouth that helps break down starch and inhibits damaging acids from being produced. This enzyme is dependent on B vitamins, especially B1.
Sugar, carbs, and starches deplete vitamin B1. The more deficient you are in B1, the more you’re going to deplete the important enzyme that protects your teeth.
Other things, like bicarbonates, also help neutralize harmful acids in your mouth naturally.
In my opinion, to get rid of cavities, you need to address the underlying cause. You have to stop consuming sugar and starches.
The ketogenic diet has many benefits beyond weight loss, including promoting good oral health—and it’s great for adults and children!
