To Fight Tooth Decay

Alan A. Winter, DDS

We know that sugary beverages and foods promote tooth decay. To help prevent itů

Drink green or black tea.
Both provide a naturally occurring form of tooth-protecting fluoride.

Eat crunchy fresh vegetables and fruit,
such as carrots and apples, to remove sugars and food particles from the mouth. Swishing with plain water also helps remove debris lodged between teeth.

Have cheese for dessert.
It is believed to neutralize acids found in plaque and boost the production of saliva to wash away sugars.

Note: Chewing sugarless gum also helps clean the mouth.

*Twice-yearly dental visits are recommended for most people. For people with gum disease, four visits per year are typically recommended.
