We eat a variety of food every day. Sugary, salty, sour, bitter, hot and cold after all our teeth come in contact with all sorts food types and tastes hence they are at a risk of damage at all times.
Our whole including the mouth body comprises of many beneficial acids. But when these acids come in contact with the tooth enamel it may sometimes lead to decay.
Sugary and starchy food is the main cause of tooth decay.
