FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

EZ Press Release  -- June 13, 2018 The benefits of taking a conscious approach to our diets have been repeatedly proven. It is no surprise that our body, and our teeth, are actively impacted by what we consume.

While sugars are often viewed as the sole culprit for tooth decay, the acidic quality of many foods is equally destructive. It is capable of eating its way through the tough enamel on our teeth, and creating cavities. The reaction of sugar with our mouth creates an acid that is responsible for creating cavities – the two dietary elements are intrinsically linked.

But certain foods can contribute to the presence of acids in your mouth, and a lower Ph value – that is, a more acidic environment – is often the result of what you are eating. A number of foods, and some drinks, are directly responsible.

To no surprise, sugary foods can provide a hike in your mouth’s acidity. But others, such as citrus fruits, can be bad as well. But there are some little-known surprises. Fish, processed meats, and protein supplements can provide a notable boost to your mouth’s Ph value.

A number of drinks are among the worst offenders. Prosecco, high in both sugar and acids, is one of the worst alcoholic beverages for your teeth overall. However it doesn’t hold a candle to the humble Bloody Mary. The combination of the highly acidic tobacco, tomato juice, and Worcestershire makes it a solid onslaught for your teeth to endure.
