NO Sugar please

Who doesn’t like sugar but the bacteria(bugs) in our mouth loves them even more.Sugar is the ” food” for the bacteria that cause tooth decay.
Eating sugar is not bad but limiting the amount is crucial for your overall health including teeth.
Try to make healthy choices like naturally occurring sugars like milk and fruit.
