Foods that can harm your teeth

La mayoría de las veces se centra la atención en el cuidado de ciertas partes del cuerpo, pero no se toma en cuenta la salud bucal. Gracias a los dientes es cómo se puede disfrutar de los alimentos.



Sin embargo, algunas comidas pueden dañar la dentadura, ya que pueden contener azúcares libres que hacen que las bacterias liberen ácidos que atacan el esmalte y causen el desarrollo de caries.



Algunos de ellos son los siguientes:



Dulces y caramelos


Casi nadie puede resistirse a un dulce o un caramelo. Sin embargo, pueden cariar los dientes. Lo ideal es elegir dulces que no sean pegajosos o chiclosos, condición que no dejará residuos difíciles de quitar. De acuerdo con un artículo de la Universidad de Rochester, es preferible consumir chocolate oscuro ya que puede limpiarse más fácilmente que otros dulces.





Los cítricos como las naranjas, limones o toronjas, además de ser ricas en vitamina C, contienen ácido que puede erosionar el esmalte y hacer que los dientes sean más susceptibles a las caries, de acuerdo con un artículo de Mouth Healthy.



These drinks being carbonated cause dental plaque to produce more acid. It also affects the enamel and cavities may appear. A study published by the National Library of Medicine of the United States mentions that consuming soda daily can damage teeth as much as if methamphetamines and crack were consumed. As if that weren't enough, when you drink soda often your teeth may discolor or stain.



Appetizers with lemon and chili



Many love to eat some delicious snacks with lemon and sauce, but care must be taken as they can also cause tooth decay. These foods are rich in starch, which is converted into sugar; if some food remains between the teeth, then the bacteria will use it to attack the enamel and, therefore, decay will appear.



After eating snacks, it is advisable to floss to remove any residue that may remain between the teeth, according to Mouth Healthy. Fernanda Alvarado, a nutrition expert, says that another food that "can damage teeth is" chilitos "like chili piquín".



Raisins and prunes



These nuts are recommended to eat as a snack, but they are sticky so they can get stuck in the teeth. In addition, both raisins and prunes are rich in sugars. If you like to eat these fruits, just make sure that after consuming them rinse your mouth and do not forget to floss if any piece of fruit was between your teeth.
