What did you have for breakfast this morning? Eggs and whole grain toast? Or a bowl of cereal? Or maybe a bagel? Depending on what you had for breakfast, it could be harming your teeth more than you realize. 

Consider this video by Science Insider:

If you have a breakfast filled with sugar, you are risking an increase in oral health issues. Sugar blends in with the bacteria in your saliva and creates hardened plaque that sticks to your teeth. That plaque can lead to cavities, tooth infections, and other problems in your mouth.

Focus on lowering the sugar content in your breakfast food. Wait at least a half hour after you eat before brushing your teeth so the harmful acids in your food don’t erode your tooth enamel.
