Tooth Decay and SodasEating sweets or drinking sweet liquids will keep the pH in your mouth high. This high acid level will attack your teeth enamel and lead to tooth decay.

Call to Action:

Brush your teeth throughout the day if you are consuming sweets or drinking sweet beverages.  Or better yet, drink water instead of consuming a sweetened beverage.

Here’s another tip:  When craving sweets, rinse your mouth with one teaspoon of baking soda dissolved in a glass of warm water. Do not swallow. Cravings should disappear quickly.

We are approaching the time of year when sweets are plentiful. 😈
