With all the temptations that will be thrust your way during the numerous holidays that are coming, it is important to do your best to eat healthy to prevent oral accidents and injuries that may arise.

Healthy foods are abound if you’re willing to look for them. One of the key elements that affects a person’s smile is due to dental erosion from harmful acids and plaque buildup in your mouth. To help combat these hazards, try eating crunchy foods and watery foods to limit the debris and bacteria in your mouth. This includes food such as apples and pears. However, exercise caution when biting into them so as to avoid chipping or cracking your teeth.

Avoid products and drinks this fall season that are high in sugar. Sugar can be transformed into harmful acids in your mouth which are capable of causing dental erosion. In addition, beware of sticky and chewy snacks. The longer that debris and food residue are in contact with your teeth and gums, the greater your risk for gum disease and tooth decay. Protect your smile this season by eating right and keeping your mouth clean.
