2 Quick Clean Teeth Tips All right, here is a quick tip for your teeth; chew gum sweetened xylitol. Xylitol is a plant-derived sugar that bacteria just can’t metabolize. It is like a kryptonite for bacteria. You see, when bacteria make cavities, they make acid; they eat your teeth. With xylitol, they can’t do that. So, if you’ve had a meal and you can’t brush your teeth but you want a fresh breath, chew gum sweetened xylitol, the bacteria can’t make cavities from that. Are you a coffee drinker? Well, if you are, I have a great tip for you. Put just a little bit of cream or milk in your coffee. That will dilute the dark brown stain of the coffee and actually help keep your teeth a little bit whiter. Do not forget to brush and floss after every meal. In fact, at least twice a day. I am Dr. Bill Dorfman and those are your tooth tips for the day.
