Don't snack sugary treat.
sugary food and drinks play a big part in tooth decay. It’s interesting to note though, that's it’s not how much you eat, but how often you eat it.

Diet do's and don’ts’s.

In other wards. It's better (for your teeth anyway) to eat a whole chocolate in one go rather then eat little bits throughout the day. Every time you eat sugar, the bacteria in your mouth produce acid that attacks the enamel on your teeth and cause tooth decay. If you eat your treats at mealtimes, rather than snacking during the day, you can reduce the amount of time your teeth are under attack as the saliva produced while eating helps neutralize the acid.
Do reach for a cheese snack rather than chocolate cheese and milk are alkaline, so the work really well at counteracting the acids that eat away at your teeth.

Do eat lot of vegetables, and fizzy drinks or juice.
Don't down fruit juice or fizzy drinks fruit juice are full of acids and natural sugars, keep drinking these to a minimum or only drink them at meal-time. Fizzy drinks (including diet/sugar free varieties) can strip the surface of your teeth, leading to dental erosion and sensitive teeth. Water and milk are the only tooth friendly drinks. When you do drink fruit juice, dilute them with water and drink them with a straw to limit contact with your teeth.

Throughout the day I jot
Little things that make me smile, laugh and frown,
I hope that I
