3 Dentist-Approved Ways to Eat for Healthy Teeth

The way you eat every day can either help or harm your teeth. Discover which foods you should choose to keep your smile at its best.

Milk the Benefits of Calcium

You know that calcium helps you develop healthy teeth and bones, but it can also prevent the development of major dental problems. According to family dentistry experts, eating a diet high in calcium may prevent tooth decay from forming. In addition, a diet low in calcium causes your body to steal it from bones and teeth, which causes teeth to weaken and increases your chance of tooth decay. Basically, a lack of calcium can lead to more dental problems and more visits to an affordable dentist. To protect your teeth from decay, your dentist would be happy if you included these calcium-rich foods in your daily diet:

  • Milk
  • Yogurt
  • Cheese
  • Salmon
  • Sardines with bones
  • Broccoli
  • Kale

Why Your Dentist Values Vitamin C

According to family dentistry experts, studies show that people who don’t get enough vitamin C are 25 percent more likely to have gum disease than people who get sufficient amounts of this nutrient. See, vitamin C is essential because it repairs your body’s connective tissue and helps fight infection. When tooth decay threatens your gums, you need this dental defense or else you’ll be in need of extensive treatment from an affordable dentist. To protect yourself from gum disease and other health problems, dental care specialists recommend eating foods that are high in vitamin C every day, such as:

  • Oranges
  • Grapefruits
  • Tangerines
  • Kiwi

Fruits and Vegetables should Make Your Smile

Did you know that crunching on fruits and vegetables has many dental care benefits? First of all, this crunching cleans your teeth by wiping away the bacteria that’s built-up on your teeth. Secondly, crunchy foods demand lots of chewing, which increases your saliva and washes away this debris. Apparently, an apple a day can also keep the dentist away.
