Posted on 3/25/2018 by Dr. Justin Lai

However, if the foods are sweet, such as fruits, you have to decide if you want to eat them or not, based on the risk how much sugar they contain naturally. The good news is that if you eat fruits, they can work with your teeth without causing extra problems, so long as you eat them properly.
