Worst Food for Your Teeth

Posted .

Do you know what the #1 cavity-causing food is?

If you guessed some sort of sugary snacks or sodas you are wrong!

It’s actually the saltine cracker. Saltine crackers are worse for your teeth because they are fermentable and highly processed starch. The crackers contain genetically engineered ingredients increasing the glycemic index which makes the food more cariogenic (cavity causing). When you eat a saltine cracker the bacteria in your mouth have a feast and they multiply beyond the proper balance.

Of course it’s not just the saltine crackers. Anything with white refined white flower will wreak havoc in your mouth. Be sure to use whole grain crackers and snacks for your dental health.
