Today, more than ever we are faced with a confusing choice of foods, fresh foods, sugary meals and fast foods. What we eat and what time we chose to eat it can affect not only the health of our body but also our oral health.
Daily diet and caries
Although the proportion of caries has declined, especially among some children, tooth decay remains a problem for some teenagers and adults. This occurs because plaque, hulls contagious bacteria, constantly forms on our teeth. When we eat food or drink liquids that contain sugar or starch, the bacteria produces acids that attack tooth enamel. Sticky plaque keeps the harmful acids attached to the tooth, which then causes the emergence of caries.

Nutritional harmful habits
Some nutritional habits can cause great harm to your body and teeth. For example, frequent meals throughout the day can increase the risk for caries appearance. Drinking carbonated liquids and morsels of fast foods increase the level of acid attack on the tooth enamel. Eating frequent and uncontrolled may do the same.

Disorder Bulimia Nervosa nutrition does not only harm overall health but is also devastating for the teeth. It involves repeated desire for eating followed by vomiting desire, self-starvation and use of laxative, diuretic or diet pills.

Voracious eaters consume very large amounts of fast food. Although this may temporarily calms hunger, anger, worries or other feelings, excessive eating can cause stomach pain and concern for weight gain.

Digestive system contains strong acids which chop food. When vomiting becomes voluntarily to remove the food from the stomach, these acids attack the tooth enamel. Repeated vomiting can erode roughly on tooth enamel. Over time, teeth subjected to stomach acids can shed and look translucent. Mouth, throat and salivary glands may display swelling, pain and an unpleasant smell may occur.

Anorexia Nervosa is a serious disorder of nutrition that is also harmful to the teeth as well as the body. Characterized by great fear of weight gain, the desire to appear thin and the inability to maintain minimal normal weight for weight and length right.

People with bulimia or anorexia do not receive adequate amounts of minerals, vitamins, proteins and other nutrients needed for good health. This type of ‘diet’ affects the entire body, by turning lost energy from the grid and causing severe injuries to the teeth, muscles and other important organs.
