Your teeth deserve healthy treats too! In fact, it is essential to take care of your teeth, so they can last a lifetime. There are many foods we can eat that can significantly improve our oral health and overall health. Understanding these foods and applying them to our diet can help your oral health in many ways.
Our dentist, Dr. Mehrdad Safavian, cares about your oral health. That is why our team at Avery Dental Center in Dublin, Ohio, wants to share with you healthy food choices.
Here are some foods that are healthy for your teeth:
– Cheeses, chicken, nuts, and milk all protect your tooth enamel by providing calcium and phosphorus which helps remineralize your teeth and keep your tooth enamel healthy.
– Crunchy foods like apples, pears, and vegetables have high water content, which dilutes the sugars they contain and produce saliva production.
– Citrus fruits, tomatoes, and lemons are also healthy for your oral health but should be taken as part of a more substantial meal to minimize the acids they contain.
– Water is a life-saving substance needed to survive but can flush away bacteria and food particles in your mouth and keep your mouth hydrated.
As you can see, there are foods that are great to choose from that can help your smile and body stay healthier. If you have questions about your oral health, or if you need a dental checkup, please call us today at (614) 932-2202 to make an appointment. Our friendly dental team is happy to help you.
