It is known that teeth play a role in chewing, smiling and¬†speaking. Can it be that you¬†do not know¬†everything about your teeth? The acidic things are just as harmful as candy. Foods with high acidity and low pH levels, such as sour candies,¬†soft drinks, fruit juices are very harmful; erode the tooth enamel, resulting in reduced tooth size. On completely¬†cleaned¬†teeth, plaque formation begins just only after 20 minutes, which is harmful to tooth enamel and then causes tooth decay on¬†long term. Proper dental hygiene¬†several times a day is very important.
The harmful pleasures
The worst devastation on our teeth is caused by citric acid. A nightmare of a¬†dentist is a candy also popular¬†among¬†children: the sour candies. In addition, the teeth enamel in children is¬†even easier¬†to damage¬†since they are softer; they¬†are more exposed to the¬†damaging¬†effects of acids. Although the teeth of adults are more resistant, foods with low pH levels and sugar-free (!)¬†are¬†harmful for them too: they lead to tooth decay. If you want to have food or drinks with a high acid content, you should consume¬†them together with¬†other foods, so that the harmful effects of acid are¬†minimize. And¬†always use proper dental hygiene¬†after, so that the damage can be minimize. The enamel is hard, but it can be easily broken.
The doctors say that chewing on hard ice or popcorn¬†corns¬†should be avoided. If you bite on something hard, two extremely hard materials meet – hard food and enamel. Those who also have several fillings should be especially careful.¬†Tongue¬†and lip piercings are not without a reason not a favorite of dentists. The metal jewelry is a hot bed for bacteria and can also easily damage teeth, as they surges¬†against the enamel while speaking.
