Sugary foods and drinks lead to an increase in bacteria that produce harmful acids, which damage the protective enamel of your teeth. You can protect your teeth from the harmful effects of sugar by:
– Minimising your intake of sugar or rinsing with water after consumption.
– Avoid brushing your teeth until at least 30 minutes after eating or drinking sugary items to prevent enamel damage.
– Regularly seeing your dentist for check-ups.
“Your dentist can help ensure your tooth enamel is healthy and stay on top of any enamel damage to help prevent cavities.”
