Balancing your diet
A healthy, balanced diet is just as important to provide your mouth with the right nutrients, but limit the foods that can cause problems.
Acidic and sugary foods damage your teeth through both tooth decay and erosion. Decay occurs through sugars breaking down into acids by bacteria in plaque – an indirect acid attack on your teeth. Erosion is direct damage caused by acidic foods, but some naturally acidic foods provide other benefits.
Understanding which foods are more or less acidic will help to help balance out meals and snacks for your family and encourage them into the right choices for life. Learn more below about balancing out your family’s meals and snacks:
