posted: Oct. 15, 2018.
We all know there are some foods healthy for our bodies, but did you know there are foods that are healthy for your teeth too? Yes, it’s true! Your teeth need healthy foods to thrive and keep your tooth enamel strong through the years.
Our dentist, Dr. Sohrab Saghezchi, is here to help you with your oral health. That is why our team at Mill Valley Dental in Mill Valley, California, is excited to talk to you about healthy food ideas for your teeth.
Here are ideal foods for your teeth and oral health:
– Water is a life-saving substance we all need to survive but can clear away bacteria and food particles in your mouth and keep your mouth hydrated.
– Crunchy foods like apples, pears and vegetables have high water content, which dilutes the sugars they have and produce saliva production. Some people call these foods natures dental floss.
– Cheeses, chicken, nuts and milk all guard your tooth enamel well by providing calcium and phosphorus, which helps remineralize your teeth and keep your tooth enamel very healthy.
– Citrus fruits, tomatoes and lemons are also great for your oral health but should be taken as part of a larger meal to lower the acids they contain.
With these positive healthy food choices, you could help keep your teeth and smile healthy for years to come.
