While there is no doubt that foods high in sugar can cause cavities and lead to a trip to the dentist, were you aware that citrus fruit could play a role? This isn’t the only “problem food” that can hurt our teeth.
Citrus fruits contain acids that can eat at tooth enamel, increasing risk of cavities.
Bread contains a high level of starches that are converted into sugar.
Alcohol can dry the mouth, which also leads to tooth decay.
“After you eat a sugary snack or meal, the sugars cause the bacteria to release acids that attack tooth’s enamel.”
