A lot of thought is not given to what eating all this sugar can do to teeth. And while a few trips to the gym might undo damage to your waistline, damage to your teeth can be permanent and expensive to repair.
How Sugar Damages Your Teeth
Sugar plays a major role in tooth decay. The bacteria that become plaque use sugar as a food. Some of the bacteria even use the sugar as a kind of glue to stick themselves to the tooth surface.
