Friends, let us tell you that what they say, you are what you eat. And at the same time it cannot be seen in any place better than with your teeth And that’s because many foods and beverages can cause plaque, which causes serious damage to your teeth. And at the same time, plaque is a sticky film filled with bacteria that contributes to gum disease and tooth decay. And at the same time, when you eat a sugary snack or meal, the sugar-causing bacteria release acids that attack the tooth enamel. And let us tell you that when this enamel breaks down, cavities can develop.
And let us tell you that according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, this cavity is the most common chronic disease in people between the ages of six and 19 years. They cause pain, chewing problems, as well as complications such as tooth abscesses. And if you don’t brush or floss your teeth, and tell that your plaque will harden and turn into tartar. Tartar over the gums can lead to gingivitis, as well as an early form of gum disease.
And tell you how you can stop this plaque from wreaking havoc on your mouth? And then in addition to brushing your teeth at least twice a day and visiting the dentist regularly, try to avoid the following foods and limit it either.
1. Sour Candies
Friends, it should come as no surprise that candy is bad for your mouth. And with that this but sour candy contains more and more types of acids which are hard on your teeth. Moreover, because they chew, they stick to your teeth longer, and that’s why they are more likely to rot. And at the same time, if you are craving this sweet, then take a square of chocolate instead, which you can chew quickly and also you can wash it off easily.
And tell me that while walking on this supermarket bread aisle, think twice. When you chew bread, your saliva breaks down the starch into sugar. And tell that, now turning into a sticky paste-like substance, the bread sticks in the crevices between the teeth. And with that, she can be a cavity from it. When you’re craving some carbs, aim for less refined varieties like whole wheat. And let me tell you that it is that little added sugar in them and also they do not break down easily.
Let us tell you that we all know that drinking alcohol is not healthy at all. And with that, but do you know that when you drink alcohol your mouth gets dry. And let us tell you that this dry mouth is a lack of saliva, and at the same time that which we need to keep our teeth healthy. And at the same time that saliva prevents food from sticking to the teeth and at the same time it washes away the food particles. It also helps in curing the early symptoms of tooth decay, gum disease as well as other oral infections. And you do that to help keep your mouth hydrated, and you drink plenty of water and use fluoride rinses and oral hydration solutions.
4. Carbonated Drinks
Friends, we all know that little, if any, good comes from a soda or pop, and that’s even if it got the word “diet” on the can. And with that, the same recent study also found that drinking large amounts of carbonated soda can be as damaging to your teeth as it is to using methamphetamine and crack cocaine. And at the same time that carbonated soda enables plaque to produce more acid to attack the tooth enamel. And friends, that’s because if you drink that soda all day, you’re essentially coating your teeth in acid. And friends, along with this, it also dries out your mouth, and that means you have less saliva. And last but not least, as well as this dark colored soda can tarnish or stain your teeth. And with that one note: don’t brush your teeth immediately after drinking soda; And it can actually accelerate decay.
Friends, if you do not know, then let us tell you that it is only water in it, so it is okay to chew ice, isn’t it? It is not so, tell that according to the American Dental Association. And this is because chewing on any hard substance can damage the enamel and in addition to this, you can in case of emergency of your teeth such as chipped, cracked, and either it for broken teeth, or loose crown. may be hypersensitive. And also that you can use your ice to cool the beverages, and with that I but you don’t chew it. And that’s to resist the urge, that’s cold water and either this Opt for a drink without ice.
Not only oranges, grapefruits, as well as lemons are delicious in both fruit and juice form, and at the same time they are full of vitamin C. And they say that but their acid content can erode enamel, and that makes it more vulnerable to tooth decay. And friends, that even this lemon in water and either by squeezing this lemon also becomes acid in the drink. And in addition, the acid from citrus can be irritating to mouth ulcers. And friends, if you want to get a dose of their antioxidants as well as vitamins, and at the same time eat and drink them in moderation at mealtimes and then wash down with water.
7. Potato Chips
Let it be known that this lack of potato chips is always satisfying for many of us. And with that, unfortunately, they’re also full of starch, and that turns into sugar that can get trapped between as well as between teeth and feed off bacteria in plaque. And with that, since we rarely have one, chips stop acid production and at the same time keep it for a while. And that’s after you’ve fastened it to the bag itself, floss it to remove any trapped particles.
8. Dried Fruits
Friends, tell you that you may believe that dry fruits are a healthy snack. And it may be true as well, but many dried fruits – apricots, plums, figs and also raisins, to name a few – are sticky And at the same time, they get stuck and cling to the teeth as well as their crevices, leaving a lot of sugar. If you like to eat dry fruits, and only then make sure that you rinse your mouth with water, as well as brush and floss afterwards. Plus it’s because they’re less concentrated with sugar, and let’s say it’s a better option to eat that fresh version instead!
