The world is faced with a crisis of global tooth decay.
It has the potential to be one of the biggest challenges humanity has faced in many centuries.
But for many people, the challenge of tooth decay is not as dire as it seems.
A team of researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay has discovered that the most common cause of tooth loss is the buildup of fluoride in the body.
This can be detected by measuring the amount of calcium in the saliva and by looking at the plaque in the teeth, the researchers say.
If the amount is high, the body is taking in more fluoride than it can store.
This is what causes the buildup in plaque.
The study is published in the journal Scientific Reports.
The researchers used a mathematical model to study the process of decay.
They also looked at the different types of fluoride available in the market, and the effect of different fluoride levels on tooth decay, the team says.
Dr Raja Prakash Vohra, a researcher at the institute and co-author of the paper, says that it is very important to understand the underlying mechanism of tooth damage.
“This could be due to other factors, such as the interaction between diet and environment, or perhaps the impact of other risk factors,” he said.
He added that more studies are needed to better understand how fluoride affects the development of the tooth and how it can be prevented.
The findings also indicate that dental fluorosis, also known as cavities or plaque build-up, is more common among people with lower levels of fluoride.
Dr Vohrah said the findings show that the best approach to preventing tooth decay could be to lower our intake of fluoride to levels that do not cause the buildup.
Dr Vijay Kumar, the lead author of the study, said that it was important to look at all of the possible factors that contribute to tooth decay and to take all of these into account before making changes.
“If you look at the role of diet, for instance, then the diet can have an impact on the risk of cavities,” he added.
