Brushing and flossing teeth daily and regular check-ups at the dentist are crucial for maintaining healthy teeth and gums but some foodstuffs and drinks require a little extra attention. This is because these items stick between the teeth or erode tooth enamel.

– Dried fruits
– White bread containing bleached flour
– Alcoholic and soda drinks
Dental experts advise waiting “a minimum of thirty minutes” after consuming these foods before brushing teeth and further information and advice can be found at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/spend-some-extra-time-brushing-after-eating-these-foods/.
