Keep Your Teeth Healthy This Fall!
With all the caramel apples, pumpkin desserts, and Halloween candy it’s easy to forget your oral health. An overconsumption of sugar can lead to tooth decay. The bacteria that forms together to become plaque uses sugar as a form of energy. The more sugar you consume without properly taking care of your teeth, the faster the plaque grows in size and thickness. Once the plaque hardens, it’s very difficult to break down with saliva or brush away with a toothbrush. The result? Cavities!
