Never Nurse A Cup Of Coffee

Drinking small amounts of sweetened coffee over hours is more damaging to your teeth than eating a huge slice of chocolate cake in 5 minutes.

When you sip you're reintroducing sugar to your mouth, creating a breeding ground for tooth decay.

So instead of sipping your coffee all morning, try and drink it as quickly as possible. Then always brush or rinse after!
