Your Denver dentist knows that it’s too much to ask that you never indulge in sugary treats, but they will tell you that eating sweets at certain times is better for your teeth than others. For instance, when you eat a full meal, your saliva production increases. This helps to rinse food particles from your mouth as well as neutralize the acids that cause plaque.
This is great news for dessert lovers in Denver and the surrounding areas because it means that sweets consumed after meals have a lower risk to your teeth because your mouth is already in optimum cleansing mode.
Denver cosmetic dentists agree that sweets after meals are preferable to sweets eaten between meals as snacks.
Also remember that what sweets you eat can be as important as when you eat them. Denver dentists are constantly reminding their dental patients that sticky candies stay on your teeth for a long time, even when your saliva is flowing. And hard candies that you suck for an extended time give bacteria a perfect environment to create enamel-weakening acids.
