7 Worst Foods for Teeth

So many foods besides candy can really cause a lot of damage to your teeth. Here's a short list of some of the worst offenders:

Popcorn Kernels: Tasty and low in calories (when you air-pop it at home, anyway) — what’s not to love? Apparently, quite a bit. “It causes a lot of problems for people in my practice,” Messina says. “Unpopped kernels tend to break teeth — especially if you have some fillings. And if you get a hull stuck in your gums, or between teeth, it may stay there until it becomes very irritating.” And caramel popcorn, he says, isthe worst: “It’s all bad — sweet, chewy and with hard bits.”
