Here are suggestions to spare your smile, courtesy of the American Dental Association:
- If you do drink something sugary, drink it quickly, which gives bacteria less time to feed.
- Drink tap water, which probably contains fluoride. Fluoride helps reduce your risk of cavities.
- Brush your teeth at least twice daily. At least once daily, carefully floss between teeth.
- Check labels and know which drinks have a lot of sugar. Teach kids, even younger ones, about making healthier choices.
