You are probably aware that guzzling soda and drinking those sugary Starbucks cappuccino aren’t probably good for your dental health. But how much thought do you give to the effects of your diet on your teeth? Practicing healthy eating habits isn’t just helpful for your overall health but, it also ensures that your teeth stay strong and cavity-free.
We’ve all heard that milk builds strong bones, and your teeth are included in that. Milk, cheese, nuts, and chicken are strong sources of calcium and phosphorus. These minerals are used to repair damage to the teeth’s enamel.
Biting into an apple stimulates saliva flow, which washes harmful acids from the surface of your teeth. Turn to other crunchy fruits and vegetables, including carrots, celery, pears, and lettuce, to increase saliva production.
One of the best ways to help your oral health is to drink water throughout the day. Water is the most tooth-friendly beverage, washing away food particles and generating saliva, which is the mouth’s best natural defense against cavities.
Acidic fruits and vegetables. Foods high in acidity, such as tomatoes, citrus fruits, berries, peaches, and lemons, wear away the enamel of your teeth. Because these foods can be part of a healthy diet, remember to brush after eating them or swish with a mouth rinse to protect your teeth.
