Who doesn’t love Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas? Well…dentists don’t…because they see first-hand the negative effects that eating too much candy and sugary desserts can have on your teeth!
In fact, the holiday season is very tricky on our teeth – what with the spookiest night of the year followed swiftly by the sweet delights of Thanksgiving and then, of course, Christmas.
Maybe the colder weather that many of us are used to come October, November, and December is a factor as well.
That slice of juicy watermelon that satisfied the kids back in July is a whole lot less tempting in November!
A slice of warm apple pie or sticky caramel pudding can be just the ticket on a cold evening…but not so great for our teeth.
Many people try to keep their teeth nice and clean…and they don’t skimp on trips to the dentist. But when candy time comes calling, we need to be mindful of the temptations and step up our dental routine.
But first – how does sugar directly damage our teeth? Well…the truth is…sugar doesn’t.
However – sugar is the CATALYST for a natural process that ultimately harms our vital tooth enamel.
Plaque Attack = Bad News!
Sticky plaque is a dynamic bacterial substance that constantly forms in your mouth, coating your teeth and gums. Sounds delightful, doesn’t it?
The truth is…bacteria LOVES sugar. When we eat sugar – acid starts to form in our mouths, working rapidly on our tooth enamel.
The bad news is that every time you eat sugar, you stimulate the plaque in your mouth to produce acid for 20 minutes after you’ve finished eating.
No wonder dentists remind us to brush after every snack!
Water Ionizers and Alkaline Water = Good News?
Yes…there’s good news…
Tyent Water is alkaline. Drinking alkaline water from a Tyent Water Ionizer can help neutralize those damaging acids in our mouths.
When you drink Tyent Water or even use it as a mouthwash, your teeth can really benefit. Not only that…our award-winning water ionizers are essential for healthy teeth because Tyent Water is chock-full of molecular hydrogen, antioxidants, and minerals we need. Talk about some awesome alkaline water benefits!
Let’s be realistic here…it’s very difficult to go sugar-free all year round. If you currently do – then great job!
But for those of us who enjoy a sweet treat in moderation…here are two key tips that will keep your teeth (and your dentist) happy:
- ALWAYS brush your teeth and floss immediately after snacking
- ALWAYS drink Tyent Alkaline Water!
