Maintain A Healthy Smile with Preventative Dental Care

General dental care treatment is a necessity as it will help you live a more comfortable life and prevent dental problems from occurring. Having any dental problems may pose as a inconvenience to most people so brush and floss at least twice a day and incorporate more nutritious foods into your diet such as raw vegetables, plain yogurt, cheese, or even fruit.

Foods You Should Avoid Consuming in Excessive Amounts

Foods and drinks that contain large amounts of sugar or syrup allows the bacteria in your mouth to increase in acidity levels, which causes the tooth enamel (the outer surface of your teeth that protects it from decay) to erode. Here are some things you should try to limit consuming in excess to keep your teeth in the best shape:

  • Foods that have high amounts of sugar or syrup
  • Candy
  • Starches (i.e. chips, bread, cookies, and white pasta)
  • Coffee, tea, and carbonated drinks
