Dental pH Scale

Do You Know How Food Affects Your Teeth?

We all know it’s good to brush your teeth at least twice a day. It’s even better to brush after eating, but unfortunately most of us don’t have the time for that.

Cavities form as a result of tooth decay. Tooth decay is caused by the acidity in foods. Acidity levels, also known as pH levels vary by the type of food and drink.

Take a look at the pH Level chart below to see if what you are eating or drinking is increasing your risk for cavities.
