Pay Extra Attention to Teeth After Eating Certain Foods

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.

Sticky candy, toffees and caramels are obvious problem foods but, surprisingly, so are:

– 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
