A few days ago I came across some unbelievable information and I thought I should share. Beware! Some of the information might seem incredulous but trust me I did my research.
There are a number of things that could potentially damage your teeth, but for the sake of space, over the course of time, I'll be stating only three I think most people are unfamiliar with.
1. Bread- I know right; of all things that could be bad for your teeth, it had to be a food item that you eat almost every day. Processed white bread is especially rich in starch and carbohydrates which usually contain a lot of sugar and these sugars tend to attract bacteria in the mouth. You might be saying, "but bacteria is everywhere on the body, some bacteria is even good for the body". Sorry to burst your bubble, but not this kind, Honey. Sugar- containing foods can be acidic and this acid erodes the enamel on your teeth. When this happens, the bacteria called (Streptococcus mutans) starts to penetrate the holes the acid created in your enamel. Once the bacteria enters the holes, cavities can start forming in your teeth and if these cavities are not taken care of immediately, they can lead to tooth decay.
