If the teeth are "rotting" it is a fairly sinple procedure to have them filled. If they are "falling off" , you may have periodontal (gum) disease. this can be treated but will need a comprehensive examination and x-rays first.
The acidic foods are not a casue of decay usually.
see a dentist for an examination and treatment plan
