As we all know from the birth till our end we use our teeth to have our food..
Did anyone think about the stage where we don’t have teeth??
Difficult situation isn’t it?? Without teeth we can’t have food, can’t talk properly and move over we will lose our face structure too…
So we should maintain our oral health to escape from dental problems.. in our busy schedule we forget to care our teeth even we all used to have foods which we get with out bothering self.
Here we Dr.Nechupadam team introducing some of the bad “bad guys” that cause tooth decay
Sugary candies and sweets that stay in your mouth: If you eat sweets, go for those that clear out of your mouth quickly. Those that stick around like lollipops, caramels, jelly beans and hard candies make it difficult for saliva to wash the sugar away. Snacks like cookies, cakes or other desserts contain a high amount of sugar, which can cause tooth decay. If you eat foods like these, limit when you eat them, instead of snacking on them through the day.
Starchy, refined carbohydrates: Foods such as chips, bread, pasta or crackers can be as harmful to the teeth as candy. Starches made from white flour are simple carbohydrates and can linger in your mouth and then break down into simple sugars. Bacteria feed on these sugars and produce acid, which causes tooth decay.
Carbonated soft drinks: Not only does regular soda contain a high amount of sugar, both regular and diet sodas also contain phosphorous and carbonation, which wear away the enamel on your teeth causing them to become stained and brown. Many energy drinks and bottled iced teas and lemonades also contain high amounts of sugar and acidity that wear away tooth enamel. If you regularly consume soda, you should use a straw to keep it from having too much contact with your teeth.
Fruit juice: Although fruit is an important part of a healthy diet, fruit juice can cause problems for your teeth. Whole fruits have fiber and are a less concentrated source of sugar and sometimes acids. In addition, juices sometimes have sugar added to them, which can be even more damaging to your teeth. If you regularly drink fruit juices, you should use a straw to keep them from having too much contact with your teeth.
Lemons, citrus fruits and other acidic foods: Avoid keeping these foods in your mouth for a long period of time.
