Foods That Affect Your Teeth

Woman biting red appleIt’s not just what you have at breakfast, lunch or dinner. The snacking in between meals can cause damage, too. The foods that have an adverse effect on your dental health, and should be avoided, include:

  • Soft drinks (including sugar-free)
  • Cordials
  • Sports drinks
  • Fruit juices
  • Sweets and lollies
  • Sugared tea and coffee

There are other foods that you may not have considered harmful before, but should be eaten in moderation, such as fruits like oranges, which have a high acid content, bananas and applies; muesli bars that are full of sugar and biscuits.

Then, there are the good foods that you should concentrate on for your snacks: water, plain milk, cheese, nonflavoured yoghurt, and any vegetable, which are always filling and fantastic while being harmless to the teeth.
