3 Dentist-Approved Eating Tips to Keep Your Teeth Healthy

Just as vital as staying away from the foods that damage your teeth is choosing the foods that keep them healthy. Learn three simple ways to improve your dental diet.

Taste the Value of Vitamin C

Did you know that research has found that people who don’t get sufficient vitamin C are 25 percent more likely to develop gum disease? According to family dentistry experts, our bodies need vitamin C to ward off infection and repair connective tissue. 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, tangerines, grapefruit, and kiwi fruits.

Bone Up on Calcium

One of calcium’s claims to fame is how it promotes healthy bones, but it also builds stronger teeth. See, family dentistry experts have found that higher-calcium diets can help prevent tooth decay. Also, a low-calcium diet forces your body to get the mineral from your teeth and bones. This gradually weakens teeth, which raises your risk of decay. Apparently, a lack of calcium can lead to more visits to an affordable dentist. To protect your teeth from decay, your dentist would like you to eat more of these calcium-rich foods:

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

Why Your Dentist Wants You Hungry for Fruits and Vegetables

Fruits and veggies are good for your body, but they’re also great for your teeth. They demand lots of crunching, which scrubs bacteria off of your teeth. Plus, they require extensive chewing, which increases your saliva and rinses away debris. By eating more fruits and vegetables, you can crunch away dental care problems.
