Limit sugars, processed foods and starches to mealtimes, and avoid having snacks and drinks between meals. The constant interaction between bacteria and sugar produces acid attacking your enamel.
Choose snacks such as cheese, natural yoghurt, fresh fruit and vegetables, dry biscuits, nuts and wholegrain bread. Cheese, for example, causes your salivary gland to produce more saliva, which neutralizes acid.
Crunchy fruit and veggies: like apples, pears, celery, and carrots - wipe away bacteria and, as they require a lot of chewing, increase the production of bacteria-neutralizing saliva.
Chew sugar-free gum for up to 20 minutes after a meal to stimulate saliva flow and help protect teeth from decay.
