Obviously sugary stuff is bad for you, and wine stains your teeth, and you may want to avoid coffee too, but how do you keep all these dentistry details straight? How can you find out what’s better or worse for you? Thankfully bestmedicaldegrees.com put out a indispensable tooth decay index. It’s a nifty graphic that shows you exactly where you food and drink ends up on the pH scale, and tells what kind of damage many common foods can do. For example, did you know that lemon juice is almost as acidic as you gastric acid? Or that dried fruit contains not just the sugar of the fruit, but cellulose which clamps onto your teeth allowing bacteria and sugars to stick around as well? Meanwhile things like fish and nuts actually do your teeth and mouth good.
With how busy our lives our today trying to balance career, kids, and still trying to live life, it can be hard to keep what we’re eating in mind when it comes to teeth- but it’s something we need to keep track of, and this chart is a huge help.
