Chapter 2 shows WHY tooth decay starts from the inside

.

Most of you probably believe that tooth decay starts on the outside of the tooth – a crack or a cavity in the enamel.  The truth is that poor eating habits, especially the regular consumption of processed foods and sugars of all sorts are more likely to cause tooth decay from the inside, as poor brushing habits are from the outside.

Deteriorating teeth is always a sign of poor body maintenance.

On average people brush their teeth twice a day – for 45 seconds on the way to breakfast and for another 45 seconds again before bed.

Tooth decay affects your whole body!

Ralph Steinmann DDS, founder of Loma Linda Dental School and John Leonora, PhD (endocrine physiology) illustrated that poor quality food plays a significant role in tooth decay.

.

They showed that tooth decay attacks from inside the tooth before you can see any evidence appearing on the outside. Also that the normal flow of fluids from inside to outside is reversed when junk food is eaten.

It’s an extremely significant study but bearing in mind my preference not to harp on too much about the benefits of good nutrition,you´ll find more on this in the Appendixof the book.

How tooth decay starts

Tooth decay starts with a tiny chalky discolouration.  The most susceptible areas are the surface, the neck of the tooth and areas where the teeth touch each other. The decaying areas soften and turn dark.  Once the enamel has been damaged the much softer dentin is exposed.  From here the process of decay is fast continuing towards the pulp

At this point you probably notice temperatures of the food you eat and drink.  You will know that the pulp has a serious infection and is about to die when you experience a sensitivity to hot.
