Nutrition

Proper nutrition is just as critical to dental health as good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Your child’s intake of refined sugar should be limited as much as possible. That includes candy, soft drinks, crackers and white bread. Refined sugar sticks to teeth and reacts with the bacteria in plaque, producing an enzyme that affects the teeth’s enamel.  Concentrated natural sugars found in dried fruits such as raisins also have a tendency to stick to teeth, which promotes decay. On the other hand, natural sugar found in fruits and vegetables usually clear the mouth before the sugar is converted.
