How To Remineralize Your Teeth

April 30, 2013 MiswakTooth Decay

What? Can you repeat that word again? Re-mi-ne-ra-li-za-tion?  What the heck is that?

Not only is the word “remineralization” kinda hard to pronounce and spell, but it is also a fairly uncommon word for many people. Once, I tried to introduce the word to my friends, and they looked at me in this really funny way, mouth hanging open and all, as if I was speaking in a different language. The fact is, not everyone knows about remineralization of teeth, and just how important it is.

Remineralization, if broken into its root form, is from the prefix “re” (to repeat or go back), the root word “mineral” (naturally occurring elements), and the suffix “tion” (denoting a state or process). From these meanings, we can say that remineralization is the process of returning or restoring minerals.

Is Sugar Really Toxic to Our Bodies?

April 3, 2013 Tooth Decay

Is sugar really toxic to our bodies? Yes it is toxic and unfortunately, most food manufacturers don't tell you the whole true about sugar and why it can kill you.

Sugar is a very addictive substance. It triggers the release of endorphins in our brain. Using a CAT scan, you can easily target the release of these chemicals, every time a person eats sugar. The result is almost instant. Studies have proven that people who eat excessive amounts of sugar on a regular basis, develop a resistance to these chemical releases. In other words, people who normally eat a lot of sugar, end up having to eat more of it, in order to have the same effect or reach a sugar high. With so many pre-manufactured foods in our society, it is very easy for people to become addicted and overdosed to sugar.

How Does Sugar Cause Toothdecay and Cavities?

April 3, 2013 Tooth Decay

In a recent put out by the American Dental Association, they addressed bacteria as being the primary cause of tooth decay. Unfortunately, bacteria is not the real cause of tooth decay but rather a byproduct of having too much sugar in your diet.

It is the acidity demineralizing teeth, which creates soft spots, and eventually corrodes into a cavity. Bacteria aid in the process, by converting the sugars into acids very quickly. Acids can last in your mouth for up to 45 minutes after
