Snack and Sip All Day? Reduce decay!

According to the ADA if you consume sugary foods and drinks, do so with meals.

  • Saliva increases during meals and helps neutralize acid production and rinse food particles from the mouth.
  • Limit between-meal snacks and sugary beverages.
  • If you crave a snack, choose nutritious foods.
  • If you chew gum, choose sugarless gum.  Sugarless gum increases saliva flow and helps wash out food and neutralize decay-producing acid.
  • Drink water
  • Brush your teeth daily and floss daily with dental products that have received the ADA Seal of acceptance.
  • See your dentist regularly.
