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.

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.
