Teach Your Children Why Eating Healthy Matters When It Comes To Oral Health

One of the best ways to keep your teeth and mouth healthy is to eat right. It’s extremely important to teach your children this concept from an early age. To help you, we’ve found a great video from Sesame Street. Watch this video with your children now:

Here’s a statement about diet and oral health from WebMD:

“Changes in your mouth start the minute you eat certain foods. Bacteria in the mouth convert sugars from the foods you eat to acids, and it’s the acids that begin to attack the enamel on teeth, starting the decay process. The more often you eat and snack, the more frequently you are exposing your teeth to the cycle of decay” (Source).
