According To The Dentist These Are The 8 Worst Foods for Your Teeth

2. Lozenges
According to Business Insider stopping the consumption of (throat) lozenges is one of the best ways to avoid cavities. Sucking such a hard sweet means that the teeth are exposed to sugars and acids for a much longer time than when eating a piece of cake and quickly swallowing it. This sounds rather logical!

3. Crackers
Business Insider also reports that crackers, a foodstuff that we always regarded as harmless, is bad for your teeth. According to dentists most crackers contain processed starch and other genetically manipulated ingredients which make crackers cause cavities.

4. Citrus fruits
Perhaps unexpected, but pieces of acidic fruit, like oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruit may cause the teeth to erode over time and contribute to painful aphthous stomatitis. Dentists suggest that you drink a lot of water if you still prefer to eat these fruits. Something to bear in mind, don’t you think?

5. Ice
Do you bite or chew (water) ice-cream? Dentists prefer that you stop that right NOW! It is a bad habit, because it is common knowledge that over time it damages the dental enamel. Your teeth may even crack open and believe me: nobody wants that to happen!
