    Saved by a straw? Sipping soft drinks and other beverages reduces risk of decay.

    Americans drink roughly 576 soft drinks every year - about one and a half cans a day for everyone in the United States. Drinking these beverages places the people who may not follow proper oral hygiene techniques at a higher risk for cavities and other oral health problems.

    However, according to a report in the May/June 2005 issue of General Dentistry, the Academy of General Dentistry's (AGD) clinical, peer-reviewed journal, drinking soft drinks and other beverages through a properly positioned straw can help to minimize the risk of cavities.

    The report tracked patient drinking habits and found that different factors - such as the frequency of sipping and the amount of time the beverage remains in the mouth - affect the type, location and severity of tooth decay.

    For example, decay will be concentrated in the back molars of a person who drinks directly from a can and allows the liquid to pool in the mouth. Or, decay will be found on the teeth in the front of the mouth in a person who drinks through a straw positioned at the front of the mouth, right behind the lips.

    "Your best option is to sip soft drinks and other beverages through a straw positioned towards the back of the mouth," advises Mohamed A. Bassiouny, DMD, MSc, PhD, and lead reporter. "Doing so will limit the amount of time the beverage is in contact with the teeth."

    However, even when drinking through a straw, the teeth located in the back of the mouth are still bathed with sugary and acidic liquids. "Try rinsing your mouth with water after drinking and use toothpaste that contains fluoride," advises AGD spokesperson Paula Jones, DDS, FAGD. "Your teeth aren't thirsty, your throat is."

    Soft drinks contain one or more acids, commonly phosphoric and citric acids. Non-colas and canned iced teas also contain flavor additives, such as malic, tartaric and other organic acids, which are more aggressive at eroding teeth. These acids erode dental enamel, the thin outer layer of hard tissue that helps maintain the tooth structure and shape, while protecting it from decay.

    A dentist can tell when a patient gets cavities from drinking acidic beverages, such as soft drinks, since the decayed areas are often darker in color and takes up more space on the tooth. The cavities also often appear near the gumline.

    "Enjoying an occasional soft drink in moderation will likely not cause significant damage," says Dr. Bassiouny. "However, substituting these beverages as a replacement for water may cause significant, irreversible long-term problems and damage."

    Dr. Jones also encourages patients who have cavities caused by erosion to substitute a glass of water for one soft drink every day, and increase the water for soft drinks, until the soft drink intake has been severely limited.

    Tips for Healthy Drinking:

    • Reduce your soda consumption
    • Don't leave fluids in your mouth when sipping
    • Don't drink soda before going to bed
    • Don't brush immediately after drinking soda (the brush will harm the weakened enamel)
    • When brushing, brush in a circular motion (horizontal brushing can wear away at the weakened enamel)
    • If you have dry mouth, try to avoid carbonated beverages.

    Dental Erosion
    Consume pickles, lemons and soft drinks in moderation

    CHICAGO (March 1, 2005) - Frequently consuming foods with a low pH value, such as soft drinks, fruit juices, pickles, fresh fruit and yogurt can lead to irreversible dental erosion, according to a report in the January/February issue of General Dentistry Magazine, the Academy of General Dentistry's (AGD) clinical, peer-reviewed journal. Dental erosion is the break down of tooth structure caused by the effect of acid on the teeth. Dental enamel is the thin, outer layer of hard tissue that helps maintain the tooth's structure and shape while protecting it from decay.

    "A low pH environment in the mouth helps contribute to dental erosion," says Samantha Shipley, DDS, and lead author of the report.

    pH (potential of hydrogen) is a standard way to measure the acidity of a substance. It is measured on a scale of 0 to 14. A lower pH means that a solution contains more acid. The higher the pH, the more alkaline (or non-acidic) the solution will be. When a solution is neither acid nor alkaline it has a pH of 7, which is neutral.

    When food or drink that is acidic is consumed the enamel will soften for a short amount of time.
    Typically, saliva slowly helps to restore the natural balance of the acid found in the mouth. If foods high in acid are consumed on an excessive basis, the mouth can't repair itself and the greater the chance for dental erosion, says Dr. Shipley.

    "As the availability of soft drinks increase so does the amount of erosion in our population," says Dr. Shipley. "The primary action patients can take to decrease their likelihood of erosion is to reduce consumption of sugary sodas, fruit juices and sports drinks."

    "Vegetarian diets and diets in which fruit comprises more than 66 percent of the total food intake also makes patients more susceptible to erosion," says Dr. Shipley. "Erosion can also be caused by stomach acids introduced into the mouth through vomiting and acid reflux."

    "These findings are important and suggest that caution should be exercised when consuming certain foods over long periods of time," says AGD spokesperson Cynthia E. Sherwood, DDS.

    Acids found in common foods
  • Soft drinks - Phosphoric acid
  • Fruit and fruit products - Citric and malic acids
  • Fermented products (yogurt) - Lactic acid
  • Grapes and wines - Tartaric acid
  • After eating or drinking
  • Chew sugar-free gum to stimulate saliva flow
  • Rinse with water for 30 seconds
  • Use a fluoride toothpaste

     

  • What is tooth decay, and what causes it?

    Tooth decay is the disease known as caries or cavities. Unlike other diseases, however, caries is not life threatening and is highly preventable, though it affects most people to some degree during their lifetime.

    Tooth decay occurs when your teeth are frequently exposed to foods containing carbohydrates (starches and sugars) like soda pop, candy, ice cream, milk, cakes, and even fruits, vegetables and juices. Natural bacteria live in your mouth and form plaque. The plaque interacts with deposits left on your teeth from sugary and starchy foods to produce acids. These acids damage tooth enamel over time by dissolving, or demineralizing, the mineral structure of teeth, producing tooth decay and weakening the teeth.

    How are cavities prevented?
    The acids formed by plaque can be counteracted by simple saliva in your mouth, which acts as a buffer and remineralizing agent. Dentists often recommend chewing sugarless gum to stimulate your flow of saliva. However, though it is the body's natural defense against cavities, saliva alone is not sufficient to combat tooth decay. The best way to prevent caries is to brush and floss regularly. To rebuild the early damage caused by plaque bacteria, we use fluoride, a natural substance which helps to remineralize the tooth structure. Fluoride is added to toothpaste to fight cavities and clean teeth. The most common source of fluoride is in the water we drink. Fluoride is added to most community water supplies and to many bottled and canned beverages.

    If you are at medium to high risk for cavities, your dentist may recommend special high concentration fluoride gels, mouth rinses, or dietary fluoride supplements. Your dentist may also use professional strength anti-cavity varnish, or sealants-thin, plastic coatings that provide an extra barrier against food and debris.

    Who is at risk for cavities?
    Because we all carry bacteria in our mouths, everyone is at risk for cavities. Those with a diet high in carbohydrates and sugary foods and those who live in communities without fluoridated water are likely candidates for cavities. And because the area around a restored portion of a tooth is a good breeding ground for bacteria, those with a lot of fillings have a higher chance of developing tooth decay. Children and senior citizens are the two groups at highest risk for cavities.

    What can I do to help protect my teeth?
    The best way to combat cavities is to follow three simple steps:

    1. Cut down on sweets and between-meal snacks. Remember, it's these sugary and starchy treats that put your teeth at extra risk.
    2. Brush after every meal and floss daily. Cavities most often begin in hard-to-clean areas between teeth and in the fissures and pits-the edges in the tooth crown and gaps between teeth. Hold the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle and brush inside, outside and between your teeth and on the top of your tongue. Be sure the bristles are firm, not bent, and replace the toothbrush after a few weeks to safeguard against re-infecting your mouth with old bacteria than can collect on the brush. Only buy toothpastes and rinses that contain fluoride (antiseptic rinses also help remove plaque) and that bear the American Dental Association seal of acceptance logo on the package. Children under six should only use a small pea-sized dab of toothpaste on the brush and should spit out as much as possible because a child's developing teeth are sensitive to higher fluoride levels. Finally, because caries is a transmittable disease, toothbrushes should never be shared, especially with your children.
    3. See your dentist at least every six months for checkups and professional cleanings. Because cavities can be difficult to detect a thorough dental examination is very important. If you get a painful toothache, if your teeth are very sensitive to hot or cold foods, or if you notice signs of decay like white spots, tooth discolorations or cavities, make an appointment right away. The longer you wait to treat infected teeth the more intensive and lengthy the treatment will be. Left neglected, cavities can lead to root canal infection, permanent deterioration of decayed tooth substance and even loss of the tooth itself.

    Kissing Reduces Chance of Cavities

    Kissing, of all things, has been linked to the prevention of tooth decay, because it stimulates saliva, which helps reduce the incidence of cavities.

    "Kissing is nature's cleansing process," explains Heidi K. Hausauer, DDS, FAGD, spokesperson from the Academy of General Dentistry. "Saliva washes out the mouth and helps remove the cavity-causing food particles that accumulate after meals."

    During moments of increased saliva stimulation, a person can produce up to a half teaspoon of saliva per minute, and throughout the day, produce up to four cups of saliva.

    More than a good night kiss is needed to protect teeth. "When you sleep, the flow of saliva slows down," says Dr. Hausauer. "It's important to remove plaque by always brushing and flossing before going to bed."

    No one to kiss? Chew sugarfree gum - it can produce three times the regular amount of saliva.

    The skinny on saliva:

    • Saliva is made up of water, proteins, electrolytes and mineral salts
    • Your body produces saliva on 24-hour rhythm cycle, and can generate up to four cups of saliva per day
    • During periods of saliva stimulation, a person can produce up to a half teaspoon of saliva per minute
    • Saliva levels are higher when standing or laying than when sitting
    • Your salivation rate is higher in winter than in summer and higher in the morning than afternoon
    • Its mineral ions helps remineralize early lesions in tooth enamel
    • Chewing sugar-free gum can increase saliva flow by three times

    Protecting Your Teeth From Tooth Decay

    What causes tooth decay?
    After eating and drinking, food particles are inevitably left in the mouth and on the surface of your teeth. The bacteria in your mouth devour the food and a byproduct of their feast is acid, which can eat a hole (or cavity) in the tooth's enamel. Left untreated the cavity can cause considerable pain, and destroy the dentin, pulp and the tooth's nerve. Thus, diet and nutrition play a major role in oral health and the incidence of tooth decay.

    What foods cause cavities?
    Many kinds of food can cause cavities. Foods high in sugar, starch and carbohydrates are particularly problematic because they provide the bacteria with a high-energy source. Also, sticky foods, such as raisins, caramel and honey, adhere to tooth surfaces and are a favorite of bacteria because it is a lasting food source.

    Diet plays a major role in the prevention of tooth decay. Increased consumption of poor food choices increases the chances for tooth decay. For example, according to the Department of Nutrition and Food Studies, soda consumption has increased from 22.2 gallons of cola per person per year in 1970 to more than 53 gallons per person per year in 2000.

    Do certain foods help prevent cavities?
    Some research says certain foods, such as peanuts or sugar-free chewing gum, may be "friendly" to teeth. Eating these foods along with or after foods that contain carbohydrates may help to counter the effects of acids produced by bacteria. Drinking plenty of water can help wash away food particles. Of course, dentists encourage their patients to eschew these sugary snacks in favor of healthy alternatives, such as fruit.

    How can I avoid cavities?
    Regular brushing, flossing and dental check-ups can significantly reduce the chances of tooth decay. Dentists recommend that people brush their teeth at least twice a day for two to four minutes each time. Brushing removes bacteria as well as the food debris bacteria thrive on. You should follow brushing with flossing, which reaches areas of your mouth your toothbrush cannot. Drink plenty of fluoridated water and brush with a toothpaste containing fluoride. Fluoride strengthens enamel. Beware of bottled water, however, because some companies do not fluoridate their product. If the water supply in your community is not fluoridated, see your dentist about fluoride treatments.

    What else can I do to prevent cavities?
    When you eat meals or snacks containing sugars or carbohydrates, follow the meal with water to help wash off food particles remaining on teeth.

    Keep a toothbrush and toothpaste handy; children can keep travel-size products in lockers or back packs and adults should keep a spare pair at work. Chew sugarless gum, (with or without xylitol) after meals or snacks when unable to brush. Drink water throughout the day to help cleanse teeth of excess bacteria and food debris, and keep the mouth hydrated. One way to help prevent cavities is to limit the amount of foods that contain sugars avoid between-meal snacks when possible. If you do eat foods that contain sugars, eat them during meals. Saliva production increases during a meal and helps to neutralize acid production and rinse food particles from the mouth.

    Finally, see your dentist at least twice a year. Your dentist can catch minor problems before they become major ones. Your dentist can give you tips on foods to avoid and how to keep your mouth healthy. Also, dentists can inform you of medications that may cause dry mouth, which makes your teeth more susceptible to decay.

    Nobody likes to hear the word "cavity." And nobody likes to feel the throbbing pain that can come with it. Unfortunately, toothaches are usually the result of a cavity or lost filling that's causing the pain.

    Cavities are caused by plaque build-up that sticks to your tooth and provides food for bacteria that eventually eat through your tooth's enamel surface. This in turn creates a hole that fills with decayed matter and spreads throughout your tooth.

    If you think you have a cavity or if you feel a pain in your mouth (dull, sharp or otherwise), visit your dentist immediately for a proper diagnosis and treatment. In the meantime, if you think you lost a filling and can see the open cavity, you can help ease your mouth pain with the soothing relief of Maximum Strength Anbesol in gel and liquid form.

    Use up to four times daily or as directed by a doctor/dentist.
