Tip #1: Avoid Sticky Sweets
...such as taffies, toffees, soft candies and pastries. These types of foods stick to your teeth and feed decay-causing bacteria. When you do eat sweets, eat them after a meal. When candies are eaten alone, they are more likely to remain stuck between your teeth. Also, please try to brush your teeth within 10 minutes of consuming foods high in sugar, such as candy. This will greatly reduce the damage that decay causing bacteria can do to your teeth!
