Dental Tips

User Level:
Wait 30 minutes to brush your teeth after consuming acidic foods to avoid damaging your enamel. Research has shown that foods containing citric acid like lemons, oranges, and grapefruits can weaken tooth enamel. But, about 20 minutes after you eat something, saliva will begin to neutralize the acids attacking your teeth. If you don’t wait for that to happen and brush too soon after consuming these fruits you can actually damage the weakened enamel. Those of you with weak enamel try opting for crisp fruits and vegetables like apples, carrots and celery.
