Los secretos de las caries

The secrets of cavities

It is known that there are many variables that affect the appearance of cavities. Genetics, smoking, diet or snoring can contribute to the appearance of cavities.

Genetics: It is known that Asians tend to have fewer problems with cavities.

Tobacco: It is known first-hand that smoking is harmful to health and although it does not directly cause cavities, it is partly to blame. Tobacco reduces the flow of sage in our mouth, making it easier for bacteria that cause cavities.

Snoring: Snoring dries out the mouth due to decreased saliva flow, as a consequence a perfect environment is created for the bacteria (Streptococcus mutans, Streptococcus mutans, Actinomyces viscosus and Lactobacillus acidophilus) from cavities to work in optimal conditions. .

Food: in the times we live in, it is easier to find an ultra-processed product than a fresh product. And the majority of ultra-processed foods include SUGAR.


We are going to talk about sugar, because it is the factor that most influences cavities and at the same time the one that we can change the fastest. Let's break a myth with the following phrase:


This is a truth like a temple. But sugar is the culprit. Let's explain this. There is a direct relationship between sugar and acid.

Sugar causes bacteria in your mouth to produce acid that ultimately damages your teeth. That is, the more sugar you consume, the more acid it will create in your mouth. But this process occurs due to plaque.

Plaque is a film of bacteria that covers your teeth and gums. It develops constantly and is removed when you brush your teeth. Every time plaque comes into contact with sugar, acid is produced that attacks the teeth for 20 minutes. This acid can create a small hole in the enamel.


That is, the solution goes through two points:

1.- Try to consume less sugar directly or indirectly.

2.- Reduce plaque.

Where we can contribute is in the second point. To reduce plaque, it is very important that you use the correct toothbrush and the necessary utensils, such as dental floss or mouthwashes .

But to maintain optimal oral hygiene it is not enough to just brush your teeth 2 or 3 times a day . You must also ensure that the interdental spaces are completely free of bacteria.

These gaps are the most dangerous, since that is where food debris and plaque accumulate and can generate infections that put oral health at risk.

You can also use DR.INUK whitening strips that, in addition to whitening, eliminate the bacteria that form dental plaque.

Knowledge is power

We want our clients to be as informed as possible so that they consciously make their oral hygiene decisions.

At Dr. INUK we believe that oral health is vital to having iron health. And for this, it is vitally important to have the habit of maintaining good hygiene. For this reason, we create honest, accessible and simple products focused on simplifying the habits that really matter in oral health.

Why is oral health so important? Well, because it has been scientifically proven that the general health of the body is directly related bi-directionally to the health of the mouth. You can read more here.

Furthermore, in recent years, we have detected that most people do not like the experience of oral hygiene products and it is the main reason why people do not get into the habit.

Our first product, Dr. INUK whitening strips , are formulated with Sodium Chlorite, which has whitening power, but also has the ability to eliminate bacteria that produce plaque from the surface of the teeth. This will help you whiten your teeth and keep plaque and, as a result, cavities at bay.
