Dr. Sam’s Tip of the month
For dental health, it’s recommended that people limit eating and drinking between meals. Of course, sometimes eating between meals must happen.
Unfortunately, most people choose foods like sweets and chips for snacks; foods that harm teeth by promoting tooth decay. If you do snack, make it a nutritious choice—such as cheese, yogurt, fruits, vegetables or nuts—for your overall health and the health of your teeth.
Did you know that certain foods can put you at risk for cavities and other dental health problems? Here are some MouthHealthy tips.
While these hard candies seem harmless, eat too many and the constant exposure to sugar can be harmful to your teeth.
Hard candies also put your teeth at risk because in addition to being full of sugar, they can also trigger a dental emergency such as a broken or chipped tooth. Better alternative?
Chew sugarless gum that carries the ADA Seal.
