Limit Sugar Intake: Holiday gatherings are notorious for sugar overload. But remember that consuming unhealthy amounts of sugar can destroy your good oral health this holiday season. Tooth decay and gum disease are caused by harmful bacteria in the mouth. The bacteria that causes damage to your teeth uses sugar for energy. Limit your sugar intake and you can limit the damage to your teeth.
Tooth decay is one of the most common, non-infectious diseases, in the world. Don’t let your family fall victim to tooth decay this holiday season. Mt.
