Avoid these foods and save your teeth

Posted on 7/18/2022 by Office
Avoid these foods and save your teethOur teeth usually undergo stressors on a daily day. From common energy drinks to coffee, there are a lot of food items that can harm your teeth. For some foods, it is quite clear that they are bad for you. However, there are some types of foods that you will be surprised about and how they can harm your teeth.

Citrus Fruits

Many people always get surprised when they hear that lemons, lime, grapefruits, and oranges can harm their teeth. These fruits have numerous health benefits, and they are an excellent source of vitamins. However, they are not particularly teeth friendly. These are acidic foods that can cause increased acidity levels which can erode the enamel. This will therefore lead to the discoloration of your teeth and in the process, affect your smile. Since these foods have numerous health benefits, it is better to take them in moderation to prevent harmful effects on the teeth.


Popcorn can harm your teeth since the popcorn husk can penetrate in between your teeth and gums. The husk can be removed through flossing, but in most cases, you might not even know it is there. This can lead to increased tooth decay and discoloration that can impact your dental health.

Dried Fruits

It is easy to think that dried fruits are beneficial for your body and forget about the impact they can bring on your teeth. Since they are dried, their sugar content is usually high. Increased sugar levels are a major reason why many people develop decays and cavities on their teeth. It is important to talk to a dentist who can educate you on the best foods that you need for healthy teeth and gums, and also advise you on the ones to avoid.
