Worst Foods And Drink For Your Teeth


We all know that too much sugar does a lot of damage to the teeth but there are some foods that are known to attack the enamel, causing pain and increased sensitivity. If you’re more prone to tooth sensitivity, it’s a good idea to stay away from these enamel-eroding foods and drinks.



Lollies, gummy bears, jelly beans and sour candy, are known to chip the enamel and cause a lot of pain. If you must go for something sweet, look for sugarless mints or lozenges that contain xylitol.

Soft Drinks

Soft drinks damage your teeth in three different ways. Firstly, they’re loaded with sugar so they turn your mouth into a breeding ground for bacteria. Secondly, some soft drinks contain phosphoric acid, an ingredient known for its corrosive properties. Lastly, they stain your teeth, leaving them with a yellow tinge. If you can’t stop yourself from reaching for a soda, use a straw so your teeth don’t come in contact with the liquid. Also, rinse your mouth thoroughly after consuming a can of soft drink.

Dried Fruit

Have you ever sat down with a handful of dried fruits only to discover that you start feeling some pain after eating a few? The combination of  sweet and sticky creates a perfect environment for bacteria to thrive and eat away at the enamel. So instead of dried fruit, go for a small piece of chocolate and wash your mouth thoroughly once you’re done.

Doughnuts are disastrous for your teeth. They contain twice or three times the amount of sugar than oatmeal cookies, depending on
whether they’re glazed, iced or sprinkled with sugar. What’s worse is when you wash it down with a cup of coffee, a beverage known to
cause tooth staining. Stick to healthier alternatives like a bowl of oatmeal or fresh fruit.

Wine and Tea

Like coffee, wines and teas are also known to cause tooth discolouration. Even if you undergo a tooth whitening procedure, the stains will likely come back if they’ve become intrinsic. Some types of herbal teas also cause enamel erosion, so limit your consumption of these beverages when possible.

White Bread

White bread generally sticks to the teeth and is converted into sugar by the body. Apart from doing damage to the teeth, it also elevates blood sugar levels. Look instead for wholemeal or wholegrain varieties when shopping at the supermarket.
