Diet Affects your Smile

We all know sugar causes cavities.  But, did you know, fad diets can lead to cavities and even bad breath?

Carbohydrates have characteristics that promote the growth of plaque in the mouth, so avoid excess carbs.  Snack on raw vegetables and fruits to help reduce plaque buildup.

Additionally, salt dries the mouth, making it hard to naturally combat plaque.  Plaque buildup creates cavities.  And a dry mouth can lead to bad breath.  May power drinks and protein bars are high in sugar or sodium, so read the labels to be sure you pick a healthy option.
