A Good Diet
Good dental health is best supported by a complete, balanced, and nutritious diet. Specific information is available to you from a wide variety of sources. Sugars are far too available in the American diet today and their impact on dental health alone is devastating. Our children are drinking too much soda pop, unnatural juices, and sport drinks that contain unwanted sugars. Diet soda is no bargain, it is high in acid content and found to be just as detrimental to tooth enamel as the sugar version. Get your family in the habit of drinking water as a general rule and soda on just special occasions. As a foot note, the Xylotal in some sugarless chewing gum is in fact beneficial to tooth health.
