List Of Bad Things For Your Teeth #2

  • Sugar: It causes demineralization. After eating, rinse with water, floss, or brush.
  • Mouthwashes: Especially those with alcohol as we now know.
  • Foods stuck in the mouth for too long periods of time.
  • Foods that are acidic: Eat them in a shorter period of time and not one slice every hour. Again, it is about the TIME the mouth is in demineralization! The sooner it can remineralize, the better.
