Natural Sugars and Whole Foods Many foods and drinks like apples, oranges, bananas, carrots and milk naturally contain sugars and also have vitamins, minerals and nutrients that your body needs to be healthy. To lower your risk of cavities, avoid foods like candy and cookies that contain a lot of sugar but few other nutrients. A lot of sugar can slip by in the things you drink. Take a look at how much added sugar there is in popular beverages like fruit drinks and sodas (Figure 3). Lower Your Risk of Erosion and Cavities Avoid sugary drinks when possible. Many sports and energy drinks as well as sodas and sweetened teas have a lot of acid and sugar. Even fruit juices that are “100% juice” can be acidic and high in sugar. Limit snacks between meals. Choose foods that are low in acid and sugar, like an apple or handful of almonds. Try to follow up with a glass of water. This can help rinse bits of food from your mouth, but it does not replace brushing and flossing regularly. If you have sugary foods and drinks, have them with meals. Saliva increases during meals, which helps weaken acid and rinse bits of food from your mouth. Chew sugarless gum that has the ADA Seal of Acceptance. Chewing gum after meals increases saliva and can help reduce cavities. Drink water. Drinking tap water with fluoride (FLOOR-eyed) can help prevent cavities. See your dentist regularly. And, brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste twice a day. Look for oral health products that display the ADA Seal of Acceptance. The ADA Seal is your sign that these products are tested and proven to be safe and effective in keeping your mouth healthy. Figure 3. How much sugar are you drinking?
