But, then I remembered one thing. Carbs get turned to sugar in your mouth by your saliva and feeds the germs that cause cavities. This also goes for ‘sprouted grains’ in which a few breads and cereals I have tried are made from.

I avoid eating ‘gummy’ carb food. Why? This is usually refined grains. I want to save my teeth. Why would gummy food mess with teeth? It sticks and gives the bad germs sugar to eat. Then, their waste products erode our teeth making way for future cavities. But, unfortunately, that’s not the only concern I have about eating whole and refined grain.
You might want to read my article on grain and other foods that feed cavities, here, before you dive into a box of cereal or keep buying any type of bread, crackers, tortillas and just about anything else that’s ‘starchy’. Your saliva turns carbs to sugar.

I guess I would have to be tested for a reaction to each, but I will likely not do that. So, I will keep testing myself on an unscientific personal try it and see level and eventually come to a conclusion on my own about the whole eat grain or not thing. Nevertheless, if you are concerned about your teeth and cavities, be sure to read this page about grain.
Note- before you change your diet consult your doctor.
