Sugars and Starches
While sugary foods and drinks can lead to tooth decay, starches are just as dangerous. Starchy foods, such as potato chips, can also stick to teeth for long periods of time and cause tooth decay, so try to always drink water when eating, or brush soon afterwards.

Using a fluoride toothpaste and a soft, compact toothbrush, place your brush at an angle of 45 degrees against the gums. Gently brush along the gum line where the gums and teeth meet, using a small circular motion on each tooth. Spend about 10 seconds on each tooth before moving onto the next tooth, brushing in a set pattern so that you don't miss any teeth.
