Is Beer Truly Bad For Your Teeth?

We love our Central Valley and enjoy thriving communities within Modesto and surrounding areas. But should you be worried that your favorite brew might be bad for your teeth? As they say, everything in moderation! You shouldn’t hesitate to partake in Oktoberfest (if you feel inspired to do so), but be sure to brush your teeth when you get home to remove the excess sugar that may be hanging out in your mouth. Beer tooth decay is a real thing, and it often occurs when people neglect to properly brush their teeth after enjoying their favorite adult beverages. The longer you let sugar sit on your teeth, the more susceptible your enamel will be to wear and tear, which can eventually lead to decay and cavities.

Worried that you may be accumulating plaque from your recent beer endeavors? Not to worry, we’re here to help! Arc Dental understands that part of living a healthy and fulfilling life is to enjoy the things you love, including craft beer. Good news, you can enjoy that craft beer and have a healthy smile too! You just need to keep up with regular teeth cleanings to keep your teeth happy and healthy. Need to schedule that next dental checkup and cleaning?
