Better Teeth & Breath: What to Avoid
Besides taking care of our teeth by brushing and flossing we also need to be aware of the foods that we are eating and what we are drinking since it could turn out to be harmful to the enamel as well as leave us with bad breath. Dr. Nicholas Toscano explains in this article, 7 Things to Avoid for Better Teeth—& Breath by Yahoo! Beauty senior editor Joanna Douglas, what we should avoid for better teeth and breath. The seven things he suggest we be mindful of including in our diet are dark liquids (especially coffee), onions and garlic, anything with seeds, corn on the cob, horseradish, and red meat. Many if not all of us have some variation of these things on a daily basis. Avoiding and eliminating these things may be hard to do but with extra brushing when eating or drinking these things our teeth and breath should be just fine.
