Why do parents stop their kids from having sugar? Why every time tell their kids to brush teeth after the kids have something sweet? Why doctors suggest cleaning mouth after having something sweet? Is it true that sugar damages teeth? Here in this video, Dr. Neeraj A. Verma, dental surgery consultant at Apollo suggest that sugar can indeed damage your teeth. As per him, Sugar is basically carbohydrates and it can turn into acid by coming in contact with bacteria that are already present in our mouth. The bacteria in our mouth stick to plaque that these bacteria can damage our teeth totally. That is why it is advised that consumption of smaller amount of sweet during the entire day can damage the teeth more than the larger amount of sweet eaten once. If you are eating sweet, do remember to clean your mouth after that because the sweet will be turned into acid and that acid will damage the teeth and gum.
