Eating sweet foods produces acid in the mouth, which can cause tooth decay. (High acid levels are measured by low pH values) Describe the information below and discuss the implications for dental health.
The chart illustrates the main reason acid occurs in the mouth with the consumption of sugar and honey products which causes tooth decay problems. The acid level is measured by low pH values.
Overall, it is immediately apparent from the chart that all products have a low acid level, and tooth decay is unlikely. Still, after five-minute, sugar has a significant risk of producing acid levels which cause tooth problems.
In detail, consuming cane sugar has a low acid level beginning at seven pH level while eating moment and surprisingly this acid level gradually decreases after five minutes and reaches at nearby two pH level. in the stage the chances of tooth decay are higher. Still, later this level continuously plummeted according to the time division. After 20 minutes, the level reached above five pH, and 10 minutes later, it crossed the borderline, which accounted for six pH levels which cavities unlikely to occur.
Following this, fruit sugar also starts with the same value at 7PH the moment eaten, but after five minutes, the pH level drops to 4.5, which produces acid, which causes dental caries. Still, it is not long-lasting, and the pH level moves upwards after 20 minutes and crosses the risk stage at a 5.5 pH level. Finally hits its peak again at seven back to the normal, which comes in the regular stage after 35 minutes. It is interesting to note Honey has a low risk of decay problems in teeth which start from 7 pH levels and continuously go down to 5 pH levels which remain the same for the next five minutes. Afterwards, acid levels surged up with a Share at 6PH in 20 minutes.
