What Foods to Avoid if You Are Prone to Cavities

Cavities are caused by a buildup of bacteria on the teeth. Bacteria creates plaque, which is responsible for damaging protective enamel and eroding the core of the tooth. When cavities are identified and treated early, they can be filled to prevent severe issues. However, when cavities are not treated, they can lead to tooth loss. The bacteria can be removed with regular brushing and other hygiene efforts, but some people are more likely to develop cavities than others. If you are included in this group, you should avoid some types of foods as much as possible.

Candies

The bacteria that is responsible for cavities feed on different types of sugars that are in common foods. This includes sucrose, glucose and fructose. One of the food types that is most commonly associated with cavities is candies. Hard candies may be particularly problematic because some chunks of the candy can be embedded in the teeth, but all candies contain sugars that should be avoided to reduce the risk of developing cavities.

Chips

Chips are not associated with having a high sugar content like candy. However, the starches in foods can be just as problematic. Like hard candies, elements of chips can be embedded in the grooves of your teeth until they are brushed away. Preventative dental care is essential to remove food particles and plaque buildup that your toothbrush cannot reach.

Sodas

Soda have extremely high sugar content. Many people drink sodas slowly, which means that the bacteria have a stream of food for it to thrive on. In addition, some people consume soda regularly throughout the day. They may not swish with water or brush to wash away the sugar in their mouth. Furthermore, as a liquid, soda may easily reach the tight gaps between your teeth.

Fruits and Fruit Juices

Fruit and fruit juices are generally considered to be healthy foods, and you may be aware of the dietary recommendations to consume whole fruits several times per day. The natural sugars in these otherwise healthy foods can be problematic for your teeth. Many fruit juices are enhanced with additional sugars as well.

Avoiding candies, chips and sodas is advisable for overall health, but there are times when you may want to indulge in these treats. In addition, you generally should include fruit in your diet regularly. When you consume these foods and beverages, remember to brush immediately afterward. If brushing is not feasible at the moment, rinse with fresh water. You also should schedule preventative dental treatments regularly to remove plaque buildup.
