Foods That May Negatively Impact Dental Health.

When you think of foods that negatively impact dental health, the most obvious foods come to mind, such as candies and sticky caramels. Problems can also arise when foods are sugary, sticky, starchy (meaning they cling to the teeth longer), or hard (since chewing them can cause tooth cracks or breakage).  Some of these foods are popcorn, citrus fruits, sports drinks, ice, potato chips, dried fruits, and peanut butter.   There are no absolute nevers. ... If you brush well in the morning and before bed, and floss once a day, drink a lot of water, and see your dentist for a cleaning once every six months, you can absolve yourself of many sins.
