The best way of preventing decay in children and adults is through control of sugar in their diet. Basically if there is no sugar in the diet then there is no decay.
SUGAR CAUSES TOOTH DECAY!!
The decay process begins when plaque is provided with sugar, producing acid which attacks tooth enamel.
- Our advice is never to give your children sweet snacks or sweets between meals.
- Keep sweets as a treat! Let them have as much as they want, no more than once a week, but that’s it –until the next week.
- They soon learn the routine and their regular appetites will improve.
