Foods That Damage Your Teeth: Part 2

dental services vero beach flIn a previous blog post, we discussed certain foods that are not good for your overall oral health. At Michael P. Gurklis DMD, it is essential to our practice that we inform our patients of simple ways they can improve their smile. Below we continue our list of top foods that are damaging to your teeth.

  • Coffee

Although coffee itself is not considered to be unhealthy, added sugar in your coffee can lead to dental damage and cavities. Also, excessive coffee drinking can lead to staining of your teeth.

  • Dried Fruit

Since fruit is considered to be healthy, many people choose to eat dried fruit as a snack. Dried fruit is often a sticky consistency, which is not good for your teeth since sticky foods stay on your teeth longer than most.

  • Potato Chips

Crunchy foods such as potato chips contain high levels of starch. Starch can get stuck in your teeth, causing future dental concerns.

  • Soda

Sugary drinks such as soda contain high levels of acids that eat away at the enamel on your teeth. Many carbonated beverages have this effect on your teeth.
