Tooth decay, also known as dental caries or cavities, is primarily caused by bacteria. Some of the main bacteria responsible for tooth decay are Streptococcus mutans, Treponema denticola, Porphyromonas gingivalis, etc., although other bacteria in the Oral Microbiome also contribute to the process.
Streptococcus mutans is a bacteria which is commonly found in the human mouth and plays a key role in tooth decay. It produces acids as it metabolizes sugars and other carbohydrates from the food you eat. These acids can erode the enamel, which is the hard outer layer of your teeth.
When Streptococcus mutans and other bacteria in the mouth feed on sugars and produce acids, they can form a sticky film called dental plaque on the teeth. Plaque provides an ideal environment for these bacteria to thrive.
As the bacteria in dental plaque continue to metabolize sugars, they produce acids. These acids can demineralize the enamel, forming small holes or cavities in the teeth.
Over time, if the acid production and enamel erosion continue, cavities can form. Cavities are permanent damage to the tooth structure and require dental treatment to repair.
We swallow 1 to 1.5 liters of saliva daily, so these bacteria in our Oral Microbiome will cause cancer, diabetes, heart disease, etc. AMMAGENOMICS Lab conducted a study in saliva samples to check if herbal tooth powders play a role in preventing or inhibiting Oral Bacteria. Different herbal tooth powders from the market and MA Omics’ herbal tooth powder were used. PCR results show that MA Omics’ Herbal Toothpowder has high polyphenols and anti-bacterial activity which inhibits Oral Bacteria 10000 to 10 lakh fold. The above graph clearly explains the study results.
Bacteria like Streptococcus mutans, Treponema denticola, Porphyromonas gingivalis, bacteria which are very dangerous that cause tooth decay leading to Root Canal treatment are inhibited by this toothpowder.
Preventing tooth decay involves good oral hygiene practices, such as regular brushing and flossing to remove dental plaque and reduce the amount of sugar the bacteria can feed on. Additionally, limiting the consumption of sugary foods and drinks can help reduce the risk of tooth decay. Dental check-ups and cleanings are also important for early detection and treatment of cavities.
