While tooth decay may not initially cause pain or discomfort if left unchecked it can cause or compound other existing dental health issues. These issues may include gum disease, dental caries, or dental abscesses.
Teeth and gums require good nutrition to function correctly. Eliminating sugary foods and acidic drinks from your diet can help to prevent tooth decay. Easting a diet rich in nutrients such as calcium, vitamin D, vitamin C, and packed with bacteria-fighting antioxidants is important.
