How to stop drinking soda for good

 soda Do you drink more soda than you'd like to admit? Drinking soda can be a tough habit to break. Here are some tips to stop drinking soda for good:

* Don't quit cold turkey— gradually cut back on soda so quitting is more manageable
* Mix soda with water to retrain your taste buds
* Count your calories to be accountable
* Switch to unsweetened tea
* Drink water before soda to quench your thirst

Enjoy citrus responsibly
 citrus You hear a lot about how sour candy is bad for your teeth, but what about naturally sour foods like citrus fruits? Sour taste is caused by acid, which can actually irritate your tongue and erode tooth enamel, making your teeth more susceptible to decay. Enjoy citrus in moderation and rinse your mouth with water afterward.






Experiencing dry mouth?  
 oral exam Using a good mouthwash as part of your oral health routine is great, but too much alcohol in mouthwash can dry out your mouth. Try switching to alcohol-free mouthwash if you experience mouth dryness or discomfort.
Did you know? Smoking can stain your teeth and tongue, and it also dulls your sense of taste and smell.




A single kiss transfers 80 million bacteria

 soda New research suggests there's no such thing as a clean kiss. In fact, a kiss on the lips is described as a "gateway for the transfer of millions of bacteria." Don't worry – it's normal!
