3 Dental Care Tips that Feed Your Need for a Healthy Smile

While some foods are bad for your teeth, did you know that others are good for them? Learn which foods are best to maintain a healthy smile.

Milk Calcium for All it’s Worth

In addition to building strong teeth and bones, calcium can also prevent many dental diseases. According to family dentistry specialists, eating a diet high in calcium may fight the development of tooth decay. As further evidence of calcium’s benefits, research shows that a diet low in calcium makes your body seek it from teeth and bones, which greatly weakens both. Basically, a lack of calcium can lead to more visits to an affordable dentist. To save your smile from tooth decay, your dentist would like you to consume more of these calcium-filled foods:

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

See What Vitamin C can Do for Your Teeth

Studies show that not getting enough vitamin C makes you more likely to get gum disease. See, vitamin C helps your body repair tissue and 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, such as all types of citrus.

Why Fruits and Vegetables Make Your Dentist Smile

According to family dentistry experts, crunching on fruits and vegetables is a powerful dental defense. This is because they require lots of crunching, which wipes bacteria off of teeth. Also, this chewing increases your amount of saliva, which rinses away bacteria. This means that an apple a day also can keep the dentist away.
