  2. True or False: If you’re doing your best throughout the day to prevent decay, then you should be limiting your consumption of acidic drinks, such as fruit juices, sodas, coffee, etc.
  3. True or False: To keep your teeth as clean as you can, you should remember to think of dental cleanings as essential, rather than elective.

Quiz Answers

  1. True. Whether or not you hear anything to the contrary, using fluoride in your toothpaste is actually extremely important. It helps you avoid cavities when you use it twice daily, every single day.
  2. True. Avoiding exposing teeth to acids is important in preventing decay. If you do drink them, it’s good to rinse your teeth (and then even better if you can brush a half hour after rinsing).
  3. True: If you regard dental cleanings as something that you must do twice a year, you will enjoy the added benefit of very clean teeth that stand a wonderful chance of avoiding decay.
