At Bilski Dental, we
understand the concerns many of our patients have regarding the protection of
their teeth from sugar. It’s a common question, and we’re
here to provide some clarity and guidance on how to best care for your teeth
in the presence of sugary foods.

Understanding Sugar’s
Impact on Teeth:

  • The effect of sugar
    on teeth varies among individuals, but it can start damaging teeth almost
    immediately after consumption.
  • Certain foods, like
    cheese and apples, are often thought to protect teeth, but they can also get
    stuck in crowded teeth, contributing to tooth decay if not properly

Best Practices for Dental

  • Brushing and rinsing
    within the first 20 minutes after eating can significantly reduce the risk of
    cavities and periodontal disease.
  • Utilizing tools like
    Waterpiks can be more effective than traditional flossing, especially for
    removing particles that brushing alone can’t

Regular Dental

  • Regular dental
    check-ups are crucial. For most people under 60, twice a year is recommended,
    increasing to three times a year after 60, and even more frequently for
    individuals over 70 or with specific health
  • These visits are
    important not just for oral health, but also for overall health, as the two
    are closely linked.

At Bilski Dental, we are
committed to providing comprehensive dental care and educating our patients
on the best practices for maintaining oral health. We encourage our patients
to be proactive in their dental care routine and to visit us regularly for
check-ups and cleanings.
