Can Holiday Treats Ruin My Teeth?

I remember as a youngster really looking forward to this time of year, with one holiday right after another.  Halloween was the kick-off event for treats galore.  This included cakes, cookies, candies, and oh yes, soda pop.  I have to admit I have never met a cookie I didn’t like.  Remember though, that sweet tooth craving isn’t the only thing that will be satisfied by these treats.  Plaque is a sticky matrix of bacteria which builds on our teeth each and every day.  Just like us these bacteria require nutrients to survive.   The acids which cause tooth decay are caused by specific bacteria which live in dental plaque.  Hundreds of species of bacteria build their colonies within plaque, which is very much akin to a well-established coral reef.  These bacteria are smart in that they have the ability to build a protective “shield” over their colony which is resistant against many rinses and even antibiotics.  This is why brushing and flossing are so crucial.  By brushing away the plaque you are disorganizing and reducing the numbers of bacteria which can convert sugars to acids.  You can also neutralize cavity causing acids by rinsing with baking soda and water, chewing sugar free gum, or even eating natural cheeses.  Your enamel is in a delicate state of mineral attack after eating acid containing foods and sweets.  Wait at least 30 minutes after eating before brushing your teeth to avoid wearing away your enamel.
