What You Should Know About Sugar and Your Teeth

When you eat sugary foods, the bacteria in your mouth produces acid. This acid attacks the enamel on your teeth and can cause decay, cavities and sensitivity.

Key takeaways:

– Reduce the amount of sugar in your diet.

– Drink plenty of water during the day to reduce acidity.

– Wait an hour before brushing your teeth to avoid damaging softened tooth enamel.

Sugar affects your general health and your dental health. See your dentist for regular checkups.

“…your dentist is there to help you keep your teeth healthy and minimize sugar’s effect on your smile!”
