The Best and Worst foods for your teeth! (2)

Here is a dental tip from your Dana Point Dentist!

When it comes to taking care of your teeth , eating the right food is as important as oral hygiene, and visiting your dentist regularly.

The worst foods for your teeth are: Sugary breakfast cereals, Sugary snacks and drinks such as soda, juices and smoothies.

The Best foods for your teeth are : Milk and other calcium-rich foods such as cheese.

Do not brush your teeth straight after you drink fruit juice or any other acidic food to avoid washing away your enamel, instead drink water to rinse off the acid or re-mineralize your enamel by drinking some milk or eating some cheese.

Please take care of your teeth, you live with them everyday!

Happy new year to all!
