It’s important to maintain a healthy and varied diet, but you should be aware that there are certain foods out there that could cause you serious dental problems in the future unless you’re careful. Here are three you may want to consider avoiding.
Yes, these are great sources of vitamin C and lots of other nutrients as well, but when they come into contact with your teeth they can do real damage. The worst culprits are lemon and grapefruit juice so try to limit your intake of these.
The vinegar used to make pickles can be really bad for your teeth, eroding the tooth enamel. Avoid eating them more than once a day if you can, although remember that having them as an occasional snack won’t do much harm to your teeth – so you can still have them on your gourmet burgers from time to time!
Red wine gets into trouble a lot for causing discolouration but white wine can also have this effect as well. Both of these drinks also have acid in them so they can do lasting damage if you’re not careful.
If you want to look after your teeth properly, make sure you brush twice a day and floss regularly as well. You could also consider using tooth oil to improve your dental hygiene by swilling it around your mouth for a minute before brushing. It has all sorts of vitamins in it, including green tea extract, xylitol and sesame oil. Read our blog post about it here.
