  Health Tip: Kick Your Sugary Drink Habit
 
  And spare your smile

  3/24/2017

 

(HealthDay News) -- Your mouth may be loaded with bacteria just waiting to feast on sugar. And many sodas and juices contain added sugar, which can lead to tooth decay.

Here are suggestions to spare your smile, courtesy of the American Dental Association:

  • If you do drink something sugary, drink it quickly, which gives bacteria less time to feed.
  • Drink tap water, which probably contains fluoride. Fluoride helps reduce your risk of cavities.
  • Brush your teeth at least twice daily. At least once daily, carefully floss between teeth.
  • Check labels and know which drinks have a lot of sugar. Teach kids, even younger ones, about making healthier choices.
