Acidic Foods

Some acidic foods can be healthy for your body, but they could harm your teeth.

This can lead to eventual decay or cavities developing if you do not take appropriate measures. For instance, you can brush your teeth after eating these foods to remove the acids in your mouth. You can also maintain a balance of the pH value in your mouth by eating alkaline foods that will help to neutralize the acids.

Sugary and Starchy Foods

Sugary and starchy foods lead to tooth decay and cavities in that, the glucose in these foods is broken down by bacteria producing acid as the by-product. The acid, therefore, erodes the enamel leading to cavities. Starchy foods are also sticky and can get stuck on gums and teeth.
