The dangers of office donut addictions
Anyone who told you filming a movie or television series is easy was mistaken. Actors must often spend long hours on the set, repeating takes dozens of times. So it's no wonder that Steve Carell and the cast of the office regularly turn to donuts in the downtime between takes for a little pick-me-up, according to People Magazine.
The news source reports that the cast regularly has a full assortment of mini donuts on hand to indulge in while they're not on camera. However, if they are not careful, the treats could cause irreparable damage to their oral health.
The high sugar content of donuts can cause a sticky buildup to accumulate on teeth. This can turn into hard plaque, which is a leading cause of gingivitis and bad breath. Anyone who fails to take good care of their teeth after eating donuts may be more likely to experience this problem.
If your office shares a similar addiction to donuts, it may be a good idea to look into specialty breath freshening products. These may be able to limit the damage done by the sugary treat and help end halitosis.
