European dentists have found that some vegetables have a detrimental effect on human teeth. It turns out that a number of vegetable crops, which are useful products for the body, can harm the teeth and lead to the formation of cavities and various gum diseases.
This fact is explained simply: along with many vitamins and minerals, these vegetables contain some acids that can provoke gum disease and tooth enamel. Such acids, in particular, include malic, oxalic, succinic and others.
Zucchini, zucchini, eggplant, bell pepper, sorrel, squash and asparagus were included in the list of “problematic” vegetables for teeth.
At the same time, dentists do not recommend completely abandoning the use of these products: these vegetables contain fiber and pectins, and are also rich in potassium, magnesium, iron, vitamins A, C and group B and other elements necessary for the human body.
To avoid the negative impact of these vegetables on the oral cavity, dentists recommend simply brushing your teeth or at least rinsing your mouth after every meal that includes eggplant, zucchini or asparagus.
