Infographic: The Tooth Decay Index

As we all know, tooth decay is a major health problem that millions of people deal with every single day. While we know that we need to brush our teeth daily and floss on a regular basis, not everyone knows exactly how tooth decay really works or the extent of the impact that our diet has on our overall dental health.

For instance, did you know that starchy foods with high amounts of carbohydrates can be bad for your teeth? Or did you know that the bacteria that cause bad breath thrive in a highly acidic environment that has a pH around 3.0?

This infographic, provided by Best Medical Degrees, clarifies which foods are harmful and advance tooth decay, and what we can do to diminish damage to our teeth.
