Cavity (Streptococcus Mutans)

$15.99 CAD

Introducing our Cavity GIANTmicrobe plush, featuring the mischievous Streptococcus Mutans!  This adorable representation of a dental nuisance serves as an educational and lighthearted reminder to care for your teeth.

Educational Insight: Discover the fascinating role of Streptococcus Mutans in tooth decay, a process accelerated by the consumption of sugars.  As the leading cause of tooth decay and a key component of dental plaque,  Streptococcus Mutans thrives on sugars like fructose, lactose, and glucose, producing lactic acid that erodes tooth enamel and creates cavities.

Cavity Formation: Sugary treats like cookies, candies, and soda provide an ideal feast for Streptococcus Mutans, enabling it to produce both acid and a sticky substance that forms plaque on teeth.  As plaque accumulates, the concentration of acid increases, accelerating tooth decay and cavity formation.

Preventive Measures: While scientists work on vaccines to prevent Streptococcus Mutans infection, regular brushing and flossing remain the best defense against cavities.  By maintaining good oral hygiene and avoiding sugary foods, you can help keep your teeth healthy and cavity-free.

Key Characteristics:

  • Description: Cavities result from tooth decay caused by acidic breakdown of enamel, leading to the formation of holes that can worsen over time if left untreated.
  • Symptoms: Cavities may present with sensitivity or pain, though some small cavities can be asymptomatic.
  • Cure: Treatment involves removing the damaged part of the tooth and filling the cavity.  Prevention is key through regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups.
  • Deadliness/Severity: Untreated cavities can lead to nerve and gum damage, highlighting the importance of prompt dental care.

Dental Hygiene Tips: Regular dental cleanings, recommended twice a year, help prevent severe tooth decay and infections, maintaining optimal oral health.

Historical Insight: Evidence of severe tooth decay dating back to ancient Egypt underscores the longstanding impact of dental issues on human health.

Fascinating Trivia: Most cavities occur between teeth, where bacteria can hide more effectively.  Additionally, statistics reveal the widespread prevalence of untreated cavities among children, emphasizing the importance of dental care from a young age.

Materials: Crafted from high-quality materials and filled with soft polyester fiber, our Liver Cell GIANTmicrobe plush is both durable and huggable. Surface washable for easy cleaning, it offers both educational enrichment and cuddly comfort.

Safety: Compliant with U.S. and European safety standards, our products are suitable for ages 3 and up.
