Dentist says: Don’t Have Frequent Sugary Snacks

Frequently eating food with added sugars can lead to an increased risk of cavities, a dental health concern even for adults. The sugar can change the environment of your mouth and make it more favorable to the bacteria that create acids and lead to cavities, Abayon warns. When it comes to healthy teeth, it’s the frequency of the snacks that matters, she says.

When you do snack on sugary foods (including acidic fruits), protect your dental health by following the food with a glass of water to dilute the acids in your mouth.
