Yes, you can do things, other than just brushing and flossing to keep your teeth in shape. Here are some tips from the June ’11 Bottom Line Health to help you prevent tooth decay:
• Drink tea, which gives you a naturally occurring form of flouride to protect your teeth.
• Eat crunchy fruits and vegetables, which will remove sugars and food particles.
• Have some cheese, which has been found to neutralize oral acid.
• Chew sugarless gum; it can lead to a cleaner mouth due to saliva production, which washes away sugars.
