Some foods can damage your teeth, and avoiding them can help to protect your smile.

The American Dental Association says foods that can damage teeth include:

  • Hard candies, because of the sugar content and because they can break a tooth.
  • Caffeinated coffee and tea can dry out your mouth. Drink water instead.
  • Sticky foods, such as dried fruit.
  • Crunchy foods, such as potato chips, that can get stuck between teeth.
  • Acidic, sugary and caffeinated sodas.
  • Sugary sports drinks.
  • Alcohol, which can dry the mouth.
