OK, we were a little hopeful with our last post, seems like winter again!  Here is a dental item for you today: Decay is caused by acid. The source of the acid is bacteria (in dental plaque) ingesting sugars and releasing acid. If we remove the plaque from our teeth daily, there is no bacteria to convert the sugar to acid. If we limit or control our sugar intake we further decrease our risk for dental decay. So, brush after meals or rinse if you cannot brush to reduce food debris (sugars) and floss once a day to keep plaque in check.
