Save your Teeth and Say No to Sugar!
Cakes, cookies, candies, and chocolates are “happy” or “comfort” food that makes you feel better because it hits your brain, boosts your energy and improves your mood! However, this type of food is rich in sugar, which is one of the most common causes for tooth decay and cavities.
Consuming sweets or food high in sugar can negatively affect your oral health. You are at a higher risk of developing dental cavities if you don’t avoid them now.
Here at Brown’s Line Dental, we care about your oral health, and thus we recommend you to stick to consuming food high in vitamins and minerals that can keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy.
Sugar acts like a magnet. It attracts bad bacteria in your mouth, which causes an increase in the acidity level of your oral cavity. The level of acid controls the number of bacteria that can grow in your mouth. Therefore, when you have a sweet tooth, you create an acidic environment that leads to bacteria accumulation in your mouth, which in turn causes dental problems such as tooth decay and cavities.
Bacteria feeds on sugar, and they create toxic acids that can weaken and harm your teeth and gums. If you don’t brush your teeth after consuming sweet food, you are at a higher risk of having dental caries, tooth cavities, and even gum disease.
The fight against tooth decay and dental problems do not end with a proper oral hygiene routine. Save your oral cavity and avoid eating sweet food. If you have any questions on sugar and its effect on your oral health, you may visit or contact us at our dental office in Etobicoke.
