Teeth damage after eating bacon and egg?

    Does your teeth feel slightly hurt after eating fried bacon and eggs? If it's not because they were too hot when you consumed them then what reasons could it be?

    Your teeth may have developed a sensitivity to heat. Other than that, I can't imagine.

    Your teeth may just be crumbling. I'd go to the dentist. Eating shouldn't hurt. Definitely not regular bacon and eggs.

    No, my teeth never hurt after eating bacon and eggs. My heart, maybe, but not my teeth.

    Just how crisp do you cook your bacon?

    :rofl: Maybe that's it...overly crisp bacon and eggshells. :rofl:

    No, bacon and eggs shouldn't hurt your teeth. As others suggested, if it does, see a dentist.

    The thing is no other savoury stuff hurts my teeth. Yes, all egg shell removed. Bacon is sort of crispy. I fry them in a steel pot for making soup rather then a frying pan. Could that make a difference?

    Maybe the salt in the bacon is irritating your gums a little?

    Could be the preservatives in the bacon. Fried eggs only also irritate my gums. But salt in other food dosn't have any affets.

    Perhaps I feel something similar. Those tiny pieces of chewed bacon irritate my gums right where the tooth meets. It sometimes feels deeper than the surface.

    Not brushing your teeth often enough or not brushing correctly. Get yourself to a dentist, who will patch you up, and command you to start brushing properly, or next time he'll leave them to rot and fall out, then no more bacon and eggs for you.

    It hurts at the place where I have my wisdom tooth. Maybe I need to get those out?

    I had the same thing today but with everything wrapped up between two pieces of bread. I am exposing less of my teeth to the bacon and so it feels fine.

    Symptoms:
    Sometimes has pain after eating bacon

    Diagnoses
    Give dentist hundreds of dollars to take a look at your teeth because you probably have a highly debilitating illness.

    Easier solution
    Eat less bacon and eggs.
