One of the best ways to keep teeth cavity-free is to watch what you eat and drink. The acids contained in sweetened drinks and snack foods erode tooth enamel and also undermine the roots of teeth.
For healthy teeth and gums that will keep the dentist happy, some beverages and foods are far better than others:
– Tap water contains fluoride which is beneficial to teeth
– Natural milk and dairy products are full of calcium which improves bone density
– Fruits, vegetables and whole grain breads are also recommended
Chewing sugar-free gum rather than eating snacks is a better option as it “helps stimulate saliva” which protects against cavities. Read more on this topic at https://healthminute.org/2018/11/5-ways-to-keep-your-teeth-cavity-free/
