Do Certain Foods Require Extra Brushing?

Every dentist recommends that you brush and floss your teeth at least twice each day. However, specific foods will require a bit of extra attention in order to avoid issues such as cavities and gum disease.

  • Dried fruits can easily become stuck to your teeth.
  • The sweeteners found in soft drinks can damage tooth enamel.
  • Bread contains carbohydrates that can cause layers of plaque to form.

“While all foods produce some plaque, there are foods that are more damaging to your teeth than others.”
