1. White bread

They say you are what you eat and this can start in your teeth. Many foods and beverages can cause plaque, which does serious damage your teeth. Plaque is a bacteria-filled sticky film that contributes to gum disease and tooth decay. After you eat a sugary snack or meal, the sugars cause the bacteria to release acids that attack tooth’s enamel. When the enamel breaks down, cavities can develop. The obvious food/drinks we usually connect to bad oral health are sweets, chocolate and fizzy drinks however there are many other things that can potentially be just as bad.

White bread is said to be bad for your oral health, the simple carbohydrates in white bread have the bad habit of sticking to your teeth. By staying longer in the mouth, they promote the onset of tooth decay.
