How to Avoid Cavities

Cavities are the main reason that children and adults need dental treatment. Looking after your teeth is more than just brushing and flossing twice a day. There are some healthy food habits that will reduce the risk of cavities:

– Eat lots of vegetables, fruit, and dairy

– Choose water rather than fizzy drinks

– Watch out for foods you think are healthy but are not good for your teeth – fruit juices, dried fruit

– If you need something sweet, dark chocolate is the best choice

– Avoid snacking and eat regular meals
