Decalcification occurs when the teeth lose minerals and strength, mainly because of the consumption of acidic foods and drinks. The problem can also occur because of the overconsumption of sugary foods or poor oral hygiene. Bacteria in your teeth will quickly convert the carbohydrates and sugars to acid. The resulting pH imbalance in the mouth makes the teeth lose calcium, minerals, and phosphates. Eventually, the teeth will have white spots, meaning they are losing calcium. This problem also affects other bones in the body. In this post, we’re going to show you how to deal with this oral issue. Let’s dive right in.
