Tooth decay: The 'healthy' foods that can make teeth 'more susceptible to decay over time'


Further to this, there are foods which can stain teeth. The NHS says wine, cigarette smoke, tea and coffee are all teeth-staining culprits. Keep them to a minimum to stop your teeth becoming stained.

It says: “Your dentist or hygienist can give your teeth a professional clean, which may help reduce the staining.”

The American Dental Association (ADA) says: “Your mouth, teeth, and gums are more than just tools for eating. They’re essential for chewing and swallowing—the first steps in the digestion process.

“Your mouth is your body’s initial point of contact with the nutrients you consume. So what you put in your mouth impacts not only your general health but also that of your teeth and gums. In fact, if your nutrition is poor, the first signs often show up in your mouth.”
