Effects of sugar on your oral health
Fruit is both acidic and filled with natural sugars which are both harmful to your teeth enamel. However, the sugar content is much less than lollies or sodas therefore, fruit is not as harmful to your teeth unless consumed in copious amounts.
No! Sugar free gum is not harmful to your teeth as it does not produce bad bacteria in your mouth and it helps promote saliva production which is also good for your teeth.
When your teeth hurt when you eat sugar, it means that your teeth are sensitive to sugar. This is typically a result of loss of enamel from tooth decay. Alternative causes to this issue include brushing your teeth too hard or eating too many acidic foods.
