Beware Delicious fruit that "stimulates" tooth decay!

A dentist issued a warning against eating a common type of fruit in large quantities as temperatures rise in the summer.

Many people tend to eat sweet and refreshing fruits, such as mango, in the hot weather.

But mangoes can contribute to tooth decay, as specialist doctor Andre Bozek said that they contain a high percentage of natural sugars, which can feed harmful bacteria in the mouth, which produces acids that erode tooth enamel, leading to cavities.

Bozek explained that the problem is exacerbated if mango residue remains on the teeth, which creates a fertile ground for bacteria that cause tooth decay.

Therefore, it is recommended to brush your teeth shortly after eating mango.

“If you cannot do this, at least rinse your mouth with water,” Bozek said. “Flossing is also essential to remove fruit particles stuck in the gaps.”

It is also recommended to wait at least 30 minutes after eating mango or other sweets and fruits, before brushing your teeth. 

Bozic pointed out the importance of drinking water while eating mangoes, as it can help remove sugars and acids from the teeth. He said: “This simple step can significantly reduce the risk of cavities.”

He recommends enjoying mangoes as part of a meal rather than snacking throughout the day.

“This reduces the time your teeth are exposed to sugar and acids,” Bozek said. “The combination of other foods can also help neutralize the acids and reduce their harmful effects.”

He also recommends eating a balanced diet that contains plenty of vegetables, lean proteins, and dairy products to support overall dental health.
