When food containing carbohydrates is consumed, S. mutans interacts with it and produces acids that cause mineral loss in teeth. The tooth cavity is the result of this mineral loss and can eventually destroy the whole tooth.

Cut down on sugar, brush with a fluoride paste after eating, rinse mouth (do not swallow) with a mineral water or even table salt water, use original Listerine (the shitty yellow kind-no flavors) a couple of times a week or peroxide to put a further dent in destructive bacteria. Don't forget to floss. And while you're brushing, don't forget to brush that tongue - a shit load of bacteria are riding on that spongy thing! Keep a metal spoon handy to scrape the tongue if you don't want to mess with brushing ... scraping & rinsing it can be quicker.

Also, a couple of spoonfuls of plain yogurt in the morning before regular breakfast food may provide some added protection. If you can't do yogurt, then pill form probiotics might eventually create a stronger flora in the body. But it's the immediate environment of the mouth that need the benefit of the "good bacteria" surrounding the teeth.

It's all about internal environment - your personal biosphere. By the way, probiotics might also help with acid reflux although, the following paper is only about probiotics and Streptococcus mutans. Shy

I have one of those tongue scrapers that you buy at the store, I try to use it daily. I will have to look into the probiotics, I hear about them all time and it seems like they are pretty much recommended for everything.

[Update] I've started using the Colgate replenish & polish enamel health for sensitivity toothpaste twice daily, and the pronamel whitening one maybe once a week or so. As for the mouthwash, I got the Colgate Total flouride mouthwash that I only use when I have really bad breath...like when I eat onions or garlic. So far so good, no sores, bleeding, or staining. As for my enamel health, still don't know. I haven't been to the dentist to find out about that.

I floss like a mother F-er. Then I use sensodyne because my dentist told me I scrub too much and I am wearing away my enamel. So now I am gentle and circular motioned on my teeth, but I still scrub the life out of my gums and tongue, also the roof of my mouth. Sugar bugs will not live in my mouth, they will die.

I use Colgate...

Unfortunately I often forget to brush, a consequence of several years of not brushing my teeth. Now my back molars are... let's just go with 'a dentists playground'. Interestingly enough, this is not really true for the back left set, only the back right.

... Don't forget to brush, kids.
