Having food stuck in-between teeth is uncomfortable and dangerous for your dental health. That is why dentists recommend flossing after eating the foods below.
– Fibers from vegetables and fruits like spinach, pineapple and broccoli.
– Popcorn and starchy snacks like potato chips stick in-between and on the surface of teeth.
– Caramel and toffee candies are sticky and contain sugar that causes cavities and enamel erosion.
Floss gently once a day to prevent cavities, gingivitis and tooth loss. Also, see the dentist regularly to have your teeth checked and treated.
