Your Diet & Tooth Decay

You probably know that sweet or starchy food and drinks are utilised by the bacteria in your mouth to produce acid, which attacks your tooth structure and causes decay.  But you might not be aware that the critical factor is not the amount of sugar and starch you eat, but the frequency.  Continually snacking and consuming sweet drinks throughout the day means that your teeth and gums will be exposed to decay-causing acid for longer periods, with the associated damage this can cause.

Reducing how often you have sugary or starchy drinks and snacks will help to maintain optimal oral health.  Replace your sweet treats with foods such as cheese, fresh fruit and vegetables, or nuts, and chew sugar-free gum to stimulate saliva production, your body’s natural mouth acid neutraliser.  Rinsing with water after eating can also help.
