Sugary and acidic foods can damage our teeth, - we all know that, but it’s not just what we eat, but when we eat it, that can do the damage.
Because every time we eat we naturally produce plaque and the bacteria in the dental plaque produce an acid. it is this acid that can cause tooth decay.
Our saliva is what neutralizes and washes away the acid, and it takes about an hour for this to happen.
If we effectively remove the plaque from all the surfaces of the teeth, even the spaces between the teeth, there is less bacteria to cause acidic damage.
