I know most of us are guilty of sweet tooth. It is so nice to enjoy a good cake or a cold soda. But in reality these eating habits can ruin our teeth. Let’s learn together how to avoid wrecking our teeth with sugar and improve our dental hygiene.
Replacing sweet tooth
Sugar is the principal component on sweets. It is the main culprit of dental caries and other afflictions. One way to reduce its consumption is to replace it with splenda and other sweeteners. It would be better overall just to reduce it and ingest more water, vegetables and fruits. But if you are like me and enjoy sugar so much, maybe splenda it’s a good alternative.
A good dental hygiene
The best way to reduce the effects of sugar on your teeth and sweet tooth is to clean them real good. We always say it on this blog, and I will say it again. You have to brush your teeth 3 times a day. Especially after every meal, and the sooner you brush your teeth after eating a sweet, the better.
After brushing use dental floss to get rid of food debris and rinse with mouthwash to finish your job. If your are consistent with your dental hygiene habits your teeth won’t suffer that much from eating sugar.
