Foods Your Dentist Won’t Eat!
You know it must be bad when your dentist won't drink sugary soda. But apples? Carrots? Yep, even some healthy foods made the list of things dentists won't eat. And here's why:
If you're struggling with weak teeth, apples and carrots can be your enemy. But one dentist says you don't have to eliminate them altogether. Cut them into small pieces to make it easier on your teeth.
Hard candy. The sugar stays in your mouth longer. And if you chew on hard candy, there's a good chance of cracking a filling. Ouch!
Ice? No sugar here, but if you chew on it, you could run into problems.
Corn on the cob. Chomping down can loosen things in your mouth that shouldn't be loose!
Popcorn. I know, I know. But I love it.
White bread. Surprised? The simple sugars quickly dissolve inside the mouth, causing a surge of acid that can erode tooth enamel. Plus, white bread takes on a gummy consistency when chewed, meaning small particles can get trapped between teeth.
