Surprising foods that are worse for your teeth than candy

You may think candy is the worst thing for your teeth but it turns out other foods can have even more of a detrimental impact on tooth enamel and cavities.

Key takeaways:

– Saltine crackers contain highly processed starch which can lead to cavities.

– Dried fruit contains extremely high concentrations of sugar which ends up sticking to your teeth and leads to cavities.

– Highly acidic food such as grapefruit and drinks such as coffee and ice tea can damage the delicate tooth enamel.

See your dentist regularly (every six months) to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy.

“For healthy teeth, you want to consume foods and drinks that are as close to neutral as possible.”
