Desserts, Snacks, And Your Smile’s Health

YES, SNACKS AND DESSERTS ARE BOTH TEMPTING AND TASTY! But they can wreak havoc on your teeth. For your smile’s health, when it comes to sweets, consider what and when you eat.

One Option… Don’t Save Dessert For Last!

When you finish off a meal with something sweet, the starch and sugar may end up camping out on your teeth longer while your saliva works to wash it away. Eating other kinds of foods last—such as fruits, vegetables, cheese—speeds up the cleansing process and reduces the amount of time your smile is exposed to potentially harmful substances.

Start Making The Shift To More Smile-Friendly Desserts And Snacks

We understand… Eliminating all sweets isn’t easy! The good news is that it probably isn’t necessary either. However, you can better avoid their negative effects by eating less of them. Try eating snacks that both you AND your smile will like, including:

  • dairy products like cheese and yogurt
  • hard-boiled eggs, raw peanuts, almonds
  • fresh fruits and vegetables
  • pumpkin and sunflower seeds
  • sugar-free gum

Whether they’re increasing saliva flow, providing smile-friendly vitamins and minerals, or neutralizing acid produced by plaque, the foods above can help prevent tooth decay. And they’re delicious too!

Easy Action Items:

Mom was right…

  1. Limit the amount of sweets you eat.
  2. When you DO eat something sugary, eat it before or with something else.
  3. Clean your teeth after snacks and meals.
  4. Keep up routine checkups.

Again, thank you for the continued trust you place in our practice. We appreciate you!
