Did you know that you can help prevent cavities just by avoiding food and beverages that contain added sugars? You see, sugar is what feeds the dangerous cavity-causing bacteria that is present in your mouth at all times.

To help make the point, we thought it might be fun to share this animated video clip from the ADA that dates back to the early 1980s and features “Mike The Polar Bear.” Check it out and then be sure to contact us to schedule your next preventive dentistry appointment with Dr. Barfield. Steering clear of added sugars, diligently brushing and flossing your teeth, and stopping by 1st In Smiles for your six month dental exams and professional teeth cleanings will keep you on the good road in terms of oral health.
