How to protect your teeth from sugar damage

 Protect teeth from sweet temptation

What can you do to protect your teeth from sugar when you succumb to sweet temptation?

We all know that sugar is bad for your teeth, but it can be hard to resist, especially at certain times of the year when sweet treats are everywhere: at parties, as gifts, even as decorations!

As well as the obvious sugars in desserts, candy, cookies and cakes, there are also sugars lurking in:

  • fruit: fresh, dried and juiced
  • alcohol which is basically fermented sugars
  • processed foods
  • savory foods (eg salad dressing, sauce, bread)
  • breakfast cereals and snack bars

Sugar is hard to avoid, even when you are trying. Most people have a sweet tooth to some degree, and some of us are definitely addicts! I gave up eating sugar three years ago, but I had already healed my chronic tooth decay by then, so it is possible to eat sugar and take good care of your teeth.  In fact, the teeth healing diet that cured my cavities actually made it easy to (eventually) become sugar free! I’ve summarised my take on the teeth healing diet in a free guide called ‘Feed Your Teeth’.

IIn this short video I share six simple tips that will help protect your teeth from sugar when you just can’t resist it!  (2.5 minute watch time)

Six tips to protect teeth from sugar damage

1. Try to limit sugary foods and drinks to mealtimes, not inbetween.

2. If you are going to snack on sweets, eat some healthy fats at the same time (eg cream, yoghurt or coconut oil).

3. If you are going to eat lollies, chocolate (preferably dark) is less harmful than candy canes or chewy toffees.

4, Avoid snacking or sucking on sweets over an extended period of time. The less time your teeth spend bathed in sugar, the better.

5. Rinse your mouth with water straight after eating anything sweet.

6. Wait 30-60 minutes before brushing your teeth.
