Your teeth also benefit from the food you eat. If you’re paying attention to your oral hygiene routine, then you’ll also want to be cautious about your diet. Let’s talk about the best foods for your teeth and gums.
Cleaning Teeth the Natural Way
Food that’s high in water content serves as natural teeth cleaners. These crunchy foods encourage the flow of saliva. They’re also ideal snacks as they can be enjoyed as is.
Here are examples:
Keeping Bones Healthy and Strong
Our teeth lose and replenish minerals naturally. However, when the acidity level in the mouth is too high, minerals aren’t immediately replenished. Acid can wear away the tooth enamel.
Calcium is crucial as it strengthens the bones together with phosphorus. Calcium can be derived from these food choices:
Maximizing Calcium Absorption
Vitamin D is crucial as it helps the body absorb calcium. Without it, the mouth will be at risk for gum disease and tooth decay.
Keep your meals varied and include the choices above in your recipes. Eat toward a healthier and stronger smile.
