How to Keep Health from Disease

Good food eating:
• Bacteria are always present in carbohydrates, especially sugary foods, so the presence of a permanent source of large sugars allows the growth and proliferation of bacteria and thus produce sufficient acids to dissolve tooth enamel faster than the speed of the body in building.
• The amount of sugar consumed by the person and the time taken to address the risk of the occurrence of dental necrosis, and examples of foods that increase the chance of tooth decay:
1 - Foods containing a sugar content of more than 15-20%.
2 - Sweets that stick to teeth such as honey, molasses, chewing sweets or raisins, which keep these foods on the teeth longer than other sugars.
3. Slow-soluble sugars, such as slow-melting sweets, expose your teeth to sugar longer than foods eaten quickly.
4 - Sweets that are eaten alone, where saliva is produced when a person eats a meal to wash the teeth of sugars.
5 - sweets that are eaten before bed, unless you clean your teeth after eating, otherwise the sugar will remain on the teeth until the next morning.
6 - Foods containing carbohydrates and sugars together, such as biscuits, cake and other baked sweets, causing tooth decay.

• Eating dairy products that contain a high percentage of natural sugar (in the form of lactose) but also contains a protein that prevents the adhesion of bacteria to the teeth. Dairy products are also a natural source of calcium that is important in maintaining the strength of teeth and bones. Lack of calcium intake leads to gum disease.

• The person needs the following food to maintain the best health of the mouth:
- Vitamin D: To build and maintain bone.
- Folate, ascorbic acid, iron and zinc: These work to renew the cells lining the gums, especially the sinuses adjacent to the teeth.
- Protein and vitamin A, A: which is the connective tissue that supports the teeth.
