When you choose your meals on a daily basis, and you drink beverages that give you enjoyment and nourishment, do you ever stop to think how they affect your teeth? Like most people, we eat and drink because it feels good, it tastes good, and it gives us energy. But oftentimes, those very nourishing meals can sabotage your oral health. Since giving up certain foods requires diligence and patience, it might behoove you to pay attention to these foods and work your diet around them whenever possible. Moderation is key.
-Coffee and black tea
-Curry, saffron herbs, and powders
-Blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries
These are the teeth-stainers. There are other foods with more texture and less staining properties, yet still wreak havoc on your dental health. They include:
-Hard chocolate bars
-Acidic foods – citrus will erode enamel
-Processed chips and snacks
