In addition to daily brushing and flossing, there are a few more things you can do to improve your oral health. These foods and drinks can wreak havoc on our teeth, so it’s best to limit or avoid them altogether if possible.

Potato Chips

This tasty, unhealthy snack is loaded with starch that gets trapped in and between the teeth, causing plaque that is damaging our teeth. If you still can’t resist easting potato chips from time to time, make sure to floss the teeth later.

Dried Fruits

Dried fruit is probably not as healthy as you thought. Unfortunately, most dried fruits are pretty sticky which is why they easily get stuck in the teeth leaving lots of sugar behind. Consider switching to fresh fruit instead, or wash your teeth after snack.

Carbonated Drinks

We all know that carbonated drinks are packed with sugar, but they also produce acid that harms tooth enamel. Note that even diet sodas and fruit juices cause damage to our teeth, so it’s smart to avoid drinking them on a daily basis.
