10 Foods That Are Really Bad For Your Teeth!

start exploring

1) Sugary Baked Treats

Sugary baked foods including pies, cakes, cookies, doughnuts, muffins, pastries, and sweet rolls can cling to teeth if not brushed immediately.

2) Sweet Frozen Treats

Sweet frozen sweets like ice cream, sherbet, ice milk, popsicles, fudgesicles, Italian ice, and frozen custard can linger on teeth enamel and cause difficulties.

3) Starchy Snacks

Snacks such as pretzels, crackers, corn chips, potato chips — particularly the larger, ridged chips — and tortilla chips tend to accumulate between the teeth.

4) Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches

Apart from gluing the sugary starch from the bread & peanut butter to the teeth like glue, additional sugar in the jelly exacerbates the cavity causing problem.

5) Acidic Fruits

This is due to their high citric acid content, which erodes tooth enamel. Regular consumption of acidic fruits like citrus can also demineralize tooth enamel.

6) Candy

Hard candies and chewy candies, such as caramels and taffies, are the worst kinds of candy. Consider how long it takes for hard sweets to dissolve in your mouth.

7) Alcohol

Red wine is one of the worst alcoholic beverages since it stains teeth and dries out the mouth if you consume more than one (for women) or two (for men) drinks each day.

8) Carbonated Drinks

When it comes to beverages, carbonated sodas and even sparkling water can have a negative impact on your dental health. Carbonation makes the drink acidic.

9) Sweetened Coffee & Tea

Moderate coffee and tea consumption is fine for teeth. Adding sugar, milk, cream, or an artificial creamer to drinks can tear down dental enamel.

10) Ice

Some people enjoy chewing on ice, despite the fact that it isn't generally considered a food. It can cause a host of dental issues, including shattering a tooth, if you eat it.
