POOR HABITS THAT CAN BE HARMFUL TO YOUR TEETH

July 10, 2019

Drinking juice without thinning it

Juice can be good for health because it contains certain vitamins and minerals, but this benefit may be defeated by the presence of large amounts of sugar in it. There is a tendency to underestimate the amount of sugar in the naturally sweet fruit juice. For example, apple juice contains about the same amount of sugar, as the same volume of carbonated water. Thinning fruit juice with water can help reduce sugar content and minimize its effect on your teeth.

Drinking wine

When we drink red wine, three things help to darken our teeth. Firstly, a chromogen which is highly pigmented substance and contained in the wine. Secondly, the acid that corrodes our teeth and they become more prone to staining. Thirdly, tannins in wine darken our teeth.

To counteract darkening teeth is to use a protein (e.g., cheese), with red wine.

Consuming too much of sweet foods

Overeating usually consists of the use of large amounts of sweet foods and drinks, which may lead to the development of caries. Overeating may occur with other eating disorders such as bulimia. Since the vomit contains large amounts of acid, they can damage your teeth over time. To solve these eating disorders, you must educate yourself about the diet you take.

Smoking

Tobacco dries the mouth and increases the amount of plaque around your teeth. Smokers are more prone to loss/damage of teeth, compared with non-smokers, because of gum disease. In addition, smoking is a big risk factor for oral cancer.  The Dental Roots is a well known dental clinic in South Delhi & Gurgaon and the clinic is run by Dr. Dheeraj Setia.
