What are some food that can harm your dental health?

Food such as

- candy (especially hard, sticky candies like caramel, taffies, mints) - cookies - cakes - muffins

and sugary drinks such as - soda - sweetened coffee or tea - juice

can be harmful to your teeth because of the amount and type of sugar that they contain, which can stick to your teeth. Bacteria in your mouth feed on these sugars and release acids, which can lead to tooth decay.

Food such as tomatoes and citrus fruits are more nutritious, but also have acidic properties, so it is recommended that they be eaten as part of a meal instead of by themselves.
