6 Foods That Destroy Your Teeth
Coffee-TeaScientists have proved by experience: both coffee and strong tea have a negative effect on tooth enamel, even if it is drunk in very small quantities. If you are a coffeelover or you can not deny yourself a cup of afternoon tea, then do not forget to rinse your mouth after to neutralize the consequences at least.
Soft drinksThese drinks are leading in the list of products harmful to teeth. And not so much because of the high content of sugar in them, but because of the fact that they all contain a large amount of carbon dioxide that destroys the enamel.
SweetsLike sweets in general, and chocolate in particular - not too useful for teeth. They contribute to the development of caries, darkening of tooth enamel and even its destruction. Especially harmful to the teeth are sucking and jelly candies, toffee and caramels, which need to be kept in your mouth for a long time, since they are dissolved or chewed for a long time.
Sour products - berries and fruitsUnfortunately, the fruit destroys the tooth enamel. It's hard to realize, but it's true: they contain a lot of acid, which destroys the enamel, and some even color it, for example, in purple. Guaranteed by this action are black chokeberry, blueberries and even dark grapes. In addition, fruits and berries often contain carbohydrates, which also worsen the condition of the teeth, and especially - enamels. These are our favorite pineapples, bananas, grapes, figs, green peas and sweet varieties of apples.
AlcoholYou probably noticed how after some types of alcohol it is a feeling of dryness in the mouth. This is harmful for the teeth. The saliva that we have in our mouth plays an important role in preventing the appearance and reproduction of caries, as it flushes food and plaque from the tooth enamel.

Starchy and carbohydrate productsProducts that contain starch and carbohydrates, especially those that have been processed - crackers, French fries, secondarily - pasta, bread - are real terminators for our teeth. These products are in our mouths for a long time, adhering to the teeth at the same time. To eat them, we need to chew them for a long time. That is why they are an excellent breeding ground for plaque formation.
