8 Surprising Foods Your Dentist Won’t Eat

Ever wondered how Tom Cruise’s smile is always so perfect? Teeth always so glistening? Well, we don’t know how either, but we do know these million dollar smiles require a lot of trips to the dentist and a hell lot of a money. As much as we’d like to believe that a trip to the dentist solves all our problems, there’s more depth to it than appears to the eye. A healthy lifestyle plays a significant role in keeping your internal system up and working leading to lesser problems. Whether you’re too busy to visit your dentist or are a lazy sloth, we have made your task easier and compiled a list for you based on foods your dentist will NEVER eat.

ICE

ICE

Yes, you read that right. Ice, your summer companion, this little devil has been destroying your tooth enamel for years if you are into the habit of chewing it. It damages the hardest substance of the human body, the enamel, and also cracks and chips your teeth that eventually also cause sensitivity. No more cold beverages or popsicles for you *shudders*

CARBONATED DRINKS

CARBONATED DRINKS

We’re genuinely sorry about this one, but it’s either your smile or a moment of refreshment, we’re sure you’d choose the former. Be it soft drinks, sparkling water, beer or some wine, anything carbonated is damaging to your teeth. Consisting of the deadly sugar / acid combination, it erodes the tooth enamel and can harm your teeth.

GUMMY BEARS

GUMMY BEARS

Just like carbonated drinks, the sugars in gummy bears allow the existing bacteria in the mouth to produce harmful acids that destroy your enamel. Being awfully sticky, the candy can also stick to your teeth and come in the way of dental workings. That leads to not just one but two dreaded trips to the dentist, one to get the procedure and the other to get it fixed.

ALCOHOL

ALCOHOL

Despite being harmful to your health anyway, this beverage can also greatly damage your teeth. Alcohol, being extremely drying can cause a decrease in the flow of saliva allowing bacteria to cling to your teeth and eventually cause tooth decay.

POPCORN

POPCORN

We all know that annoying popcorn hulls that get stuck to your teeth and well, there’s food for bacteria right there eventually leading to cavities. Also, it is worth mentioning that many dentists have reported that unpopped popcorns are so damaging, they are hard enough to break a tooth.

CITRUS

CITRUS

TOO ACIDIC. Enough said. Directly damaging the enamel over time, excessive intake of citrus foods have been secretly destroying your teeth. Promoting tooth decay and eventually causing high sensitivity.

PEANUT BUTTER AND JAM

PEANUT BUTTER AND JAM

If you didn’t already know, these are PACKED with sugars. Now sugar isn’t just food for you but also the existing bacteria in your mouth and that bacteria feed on the sugar causing tooth cavities and eventual decay.

COFFEE

COFFEE

This is probably your hardest goodbye but is feeling good really better than looking good? Pigments from a coffee can SIGNIFICANTLY stain your teeth, which you must have obviously noticed. Also packed with excessive sugars, you already know the drill, more food for the bacteria.
