The lack of proper hygienic care and excessive consumption of sugary, sticky candy can cause cavities. If you experience tooth decay, you can only return to a healthy mouth by drilling out the decay and filling the hole with a synthetic compound. In some cases, the tooth may even be removed.
The British Medical Journal published a study which showed that your diet can help you to heal tooth decay. The study included 62 children divided into 3 groups. The first group had a traditional diet with the addition of oatmeal rich phytic acid.
Children in the second group ate a traditional diet with the addition of a vitamin D supplement while the third group had a grain-free diet with the addition of a vitamin D supplement. The results showed that the children in the first group experienced an increase in cavities. The second group experienced an improvement in current tooth decay and less formation of new decay while the children in the third group had the best dental improvement and almost all cavities were healed.
