5 Dental Care Diet Discoveries

You know that brushing, flossing, and trips to the dentist are vital for your smile. But now dental care experts have found that your diet is just as essential. Discover which foods are best to maintain your dental health.

  1. Say Cheese

According to family dentistry experts, eating cheese can neutralize the acid in your mouth that can lead to dental damage and more trips to an affordable dentist. Also, cheese is high in calcium, which can strengthen tooth enamel as well as help to build healthy teeth and bones. Plus, the act of chewing that cheese causes an increase in your saliva, which can wash away oral bacteria that attacks teeth and gums.

  1. Milk Your Milk for All its Worth

Just as with cheese, high-calcium milk can strengthen tooth enamel and neutralize acids in the mouth that contribute to tooth decay and the need to visit your affordable dentist that much more.

  1. Crunch when You Munch

When you crave a crunchy snack, your dentist wants you to reach for crunchy fruits and vegetables. See, eating crisp veggies and fruits demands lots of chewing, which scrubs plaque off of teeth. It also increases your saliva production to rinse away bacteria. Try to crunch and clean with crispy choices like carrots, apples, cucumbers, and other fresh fruits and veggies. Ask your family dentistry clinic for ideas on adding these into meals and snacks.

  1. Feel Free to Chew Sugar-free Gum

You may be surprised to learn that sugar-free gum is actually good your smile. When you chew a piece after eating, you’ll boost your flow of saliva, which cleans away oral bacteria. But your affordable dentist will warn that the gum must be sugar-free to keep decay away.

  1. Power Up With Protein

Protein is great for your body, but it’s just as good for your teeth. Protein such as lean meats, poultry, fish, and eggs are very high in phosphorous, which dental care experts say can keep tooth enamel healthy.
