• Avoid taking sugary sodas and instead start taking enough amounts of water and fruits. Things for which you like taking soda can cause problem for your teeth. Using water and fruits you can have a much healthier alternative. If you still have that crave for soda, try out a lemon with water, or by adding some berries. With this you can have a double impact. That is, not only intake of water and fruits avoid sugars that can from forming acids that can wear down your teeth, you will be also reducing some big amount of calories from your diet.

• It is best to order water along with whatever drink you buy. Remember that water turns out to be great for your body, mouth and teeth. At times it is OK to have other kinds of beverages, but you should always clean your mouth afterwards. This is because water can help you prevent these sugary drinks from remaining and creating bad breath and finally causing tooth decay. It will also help you to keep your teeth away from stains.


• Avoid chewy candies or other hard sweets. By saying this, we don’t want to dishearten our sweet lovers. Sugar is not bad for you. It is the acids that are produced when bacterial actions starts happening in your mouth and breaks down the left over sugar. This happens mainly when sugar stays around for a long time in your mouth. This is why we recommend avoiding chewy candies as that can be bad for teeth. Avoid them from your snacks or make sure that you thoroughly clean your teeth as soon as you have them.


• Switch normal chewing gums with Xylitol gum. This is the simplest way to avoid sugar, in case you are too much addicted to chewing gums. Xylitol is as sweet as sugar, but the bacterial action taking place in the mouth can’t break it down. This lessens the chance to have bad breath and tooth decay. Chewing gum as such is good for your mouth as it keeps your mouth moisturized, offer freshness in your breath, and prevents cracking of the tongue and gums.

Start following these simple steps in your daily life and be free from unwanted dental visits. If you still feel that this is not enough to protect your teeth from decay, just schedule an appointment with Smilestation, Indiranagar, Bangalore anytime in the day using our online scheduling tool.
