Often fruit roll-ups, raisins and other dried fruit are mistakenly believed to be wholesome and therefore better for teeth than candy.

The sugars in these fruits are highly concentrated by the drying and their chewy texture makes them stick to teeth, giving them plenty of time to do damage.

The longer you give these foods to inflict some damage, the more likely it will be successful in doing so.

If you’re not able to brush after you eat, either rinsing your mouth with warm water or chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes after a meal will help remove food particles and bacteria from your teeth.
