Some new research done for USA TODAY shows that we are decreasing our sugar intake habits, which can help prevent and reduce cavities. Is USA finally kicking its sugar habit?
However, we must still be careful of what and when we eat, including the frequency we have snacks and especially soda drinks.

A case report by the Acadamy of General Dentists shows us how much harm can be done if proper care is not given to our oral health. (Warning: graphic images) CBSNEWS
It's great to see a reduction in sugar intake, but we must still take proper care of our teeth and monitor the influencing factors that lead to tooth decay, including the frequency and amount of what we eat and drink.
