Holiday Sweets

With so many holiday sweets to tease us, some of us worry about gaining weight, but it's not just our waistline we need to watch.

The American Dental Association says it's not uncommon for Santa to leave us with a cavity. Aside from regular brushing and flossing, the ADA says you're better off eating sugar foods with a meal instead of as a snack by itself because you produce more saliva when you eat a meal and that saliva will help rinse the food from your mouth.

So, if you do snack on a sweet treat, the ADA says at least remember to drink more so you can help wash away bacteria.
