Daily brushing and flossing is the foundation for a healthy mouth. But can all your hard work be undone with some bad food choices? Unfortunately the foods we eat can unravel the effort we put in to keeping our teeth healthy; especially if our choices come laden with hidden sugars.
Bacteria on our teeth feed off sugars in our food – releasing acid that erodes tooth enamel. Every time you eat something sugary your teeth are under an acid attack for up to one hour. And the more frequently you include high sugar foods in your diet, the more frequently your teeth come under attack from acids that destroy enamel and cause dental decay to form. Limiting the amount and frequency your teeth are exposed to sugar will reduce your risk of dental decay.
So now that you know to avoid and reduce your sugar consumption – what foods should you reach-for to keep your body and mouth healthy? Family Dentists at Metro Dental in Harvest Hills encourage patients to load up on the following foods and drinks that will not only help keep teeth happy, but also contribute to a person’s overall vitality.
