Did you know that the foods and drinks you consume can have a long-lasting effect on your oral health? The next time you get a teeth cleaning in Lake Stevens, ask your dentist about the health of your tooth enamel. Enamel is a hard substance that protects your teeth, but it can be worn away over time by acid and other factors. Watch this video to learn more dental care tips.
Many people know that drinking soda is bad for your teeth, but not everyone knows that it is the acidic nature of soda as well as the sugar that does damage to your dental care. That’s why diet sodas are just as bad for your teeth as regular sodas. Citrus fruits can also harm your tooth enamel. Avoid brushing your teeth right after you have acidic foods and beverages, as the enamel is still soft and can be damaged more at this time. Rinse your mouth with water, and try not to linger over acidic beverages.
