Snacking Affects Your Dental Health, Too

DID-YOU-KNOWFor optimal dental heath, it’s recommended that people limit eating and drinking between meals.  But let’s admit it: We all snack from time to time.  Unfortunately, many people choose foods such as sweets and chips for snacks; food that harm teeth by promoting tooth decay.  If you do snack, make it a nutritious choice – such as cheese, yogurt, fruits, vegetables or nuts – for your overall health and the health of your teeth.  Drinking plenty of water between meals is also great, not just for your general health but also for helping to flush away food from teeth and gums between brushings.
