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.
-Try to stay away from juice(high in sugar)
-Skip soda (sugary,carbonated beverages)
-Avoid sticky snacks if you don’t have time to rinse right after
sticky foods adhere to teeth and invite bacteria.
Please try to avoid following:
Hard candies,ice( avoid chewing),acidic foods,excessive consumption of caffeinated sugary coffee and tea,sticky foods,excessive potato chips,soda,limit alcohol consumption to avoid dehydration and dry mouth and limit sports drinks.
