The Bacteria that Causes Cavities - Problem of tooth decay is one of the many diseases in humans that often occur. However, there are still many who realized that the holes in the teeth generally occurs because of transmission of bacteria called Streptococcus mutants.
Streptococcus mutants are commonly found on human teeth cavity wounds and most conducive to bacteria that cause dental caries to email.
"If at birth no bacteria Streptococcus mutants, but this is usually transmitted from mother or from friends,"said Anton Rahardjo drg, MSM, PhD, from the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Indonesia, in Jakarta, Thursday (06/23/2011).
Streptococcus mutants is the type most likely to cause cavities throughout the world, from all the other oral streptococci. These bacteria survive from a group of different carbohydrates. When sugar is metabolized to other energy sources, microbes produce acids that cause cavities in teeth.
Age between 11-33 months, according to Anton, was a time that is prone to transmission. Thus, if the vulnerable age a child is not infected with bacteria, the future is unlikely they will run the risk of cavities.
Transmission of bacteria destroyer teeth in children, said Anton, most often due to habits of society that has not been realized. For example, when mothers give their children eat, the mother will usually be a first taste of what is cool or not. In addition, it could be because parents are often kissed her child, especially in the mouth.
According to Anton, now many studies that lead to the dental health of a person's quality of life. "When the teeth have grown, and must be taken not to hole. From a small child must have a toothbrush. Teeth hole there are three causes, carbohydrates, dental, and germs. If all three stuck to it so the hole," he said.
