Who develop tooth decay more commonly?
Those who consume carbohydrate and sugary foods commonly are under higher risk of decay. Although the saliva creates a defense mechanism against the acid produced by the bacterial plaque, it cannot prevent decays on its own. Diseases that reduce the saliva flow and amount or drugs may fasten decay formation. Therefore, dentists commonly advise use of sugar free gums because they increase saliva flow.
