· Watch that sugar: Common sense, right? But many people don't know that the plaque on your teeth contain bacteria that can cause cavities. The bacteria feed on sugar, releasing acid that attacks the teeth. Sugary foods and beverages provide an all-day buffet for these cavity creators. Train your taste buds to enjoy healthy fare such as fruit and vegetables, whole grains and lean protein. Your teeth and your waistline will thank you.
· Sip all day, risk decay: Sipping sugary beverages - even that seemingly-innocent fruit juice - over extended periods creates an environment where the teeth are constantly attacked by acid. Sipping fluoridated water is best for your teeth. If you choose soda, have it with a meal.
In addition to eating a balanced diet, the ADA recommends limiting between-meal snacks, brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily and visiting your dentist regularly to keep your mouth in tip top shape.
