Your Diet

Your diet can make a big difference. Many people think it’s the amount of sugar that you consume that effects your teeth. Although a diet high in sugar will be damaging to your teeth interestingly it’s actually HOW OFTEN you have it that makes the big difference.

It takes your mouth about 40 minutes to cancel out the acid caused by the sugar you consume so it is much better to limit the amount of times you consume sugar throughout the day (in both sugary drinks and foods) than the total amount of sugar.
