Sugary snacks and candy may seem like a sweet treat to you, but to your teeth it’s downright terrifying! Sugar that is left on your teeth leads to the production of acid that eats away at your enamel causing tooth decay and cavities.
Cavities can vary in severity, some needing just a filling while others need an entire root canal. Some cavities can go undetected, however the longer a cavity goes untreated the worse it gets. With some helpful tips, you can maintain your healthy smile free of cavities!
Tips to Avoid Cavities:
- Brush and floss twice a day
- Brush after eating or drinking anything high in sugar
- Monitor your diet to limit your sugar intake
- Visit your dentist regularly
- Drink more water
