Often times you hear people raise the idea that you shouldn’t snack too frequently throughout the day, due to the potential plaque build. And while we certainly understand why this topic is raised, let's delve into the nitty gritty of the subject.
Over time we all experience some sort of plaque buildup due to the foods and beverages we ingest. However, don’t just settle on the idea that just because this occurs, we are without options to prevent it.
Now while we are huge proponents of proper nutrition and eating the right foods to maintain a healthy mouth, we aren’t naive to the fact that the average American diet, consists of snacks with high amounts of sugar and starches, that cause immediate plaque buildups, if we’re not careful
See within the first 20 minutes after we’ve snacked, food particles quickly take form in our mouth and attach to our teeth enamel. Which leads to their breakdown, and eventually cavities.
The good news is, we can still take a stand against plaque! In fact, the reason we created the Brushee was to provide you with a travel toothbrush that allowed you to snack frequently throughout the day, while still easily removing plaque.
By carrying a Brushee with you to brush and floss between meals and snacks, your immediately fighting against the plaque build up before it even occurs, and protecting you and your family from potential tooth decay.
