Many of us just don’t know the effects of different foods that we take in our body, especially the effects it has on our teeth. For example, the longer food stays in your mouth, the more of a risk it has on your teeth. Eating chips, pasta and noodles frequently may be harsh on our teeth because of the carbohydrates that are being reprocessed. When eating leftover foods, it can also cause harm on your teeth because of the bacteria that is present in the food. It can produce acid that will cause tooth decay. Eating foods that are chewable and sticky, can also be a cause for tooth breakdown. However, one of the biggest causes for tooth decay comes from the carbonated soft drinks. The sugar tends to cover the teeth, which causes the decaying of teeth much quicker.
