Your Teeth Need a Healthy Diet, Too

Healthy Teeth

What’s good for your health is also good for the health of your teeth. Many of the foods that build your body’s immunity to disease are proving to build stronger teeth and gums as well. And stocking your pantry with these delicious items is a lot easier and more affordable than that unscheduled trip to the dentist if something goes wrong.

Antioxidants not only help our bodies fight disease, but they also play a part in good dental care. Antioxidants have been shown to help reduce inflammation and minimize its effect on teeth and gums. Some of the most well-known antioxidants include vitamin C, vitamin E, lutein, lycopene, beta-carotene, and selenium, which are in many fruits and vegetables such as cantaloupe, berries, squash, spinach, carrots, sweet potatoes, and kale. Other sources are milk and almonds.

While antioxidants help in reducing the development of dental problems, foods with crunch and calcium can help remove existing ones. Crunchy foods like apples, pears, celery, and carrots, can remove harmful plaque, as well as coffee, tea, and red wine stains. Calcium-rich foods including dairy products, nuts, and leafy greens will help to strengthen teeth and can redeposit the minerals on your teeth’s enamel that have been eroded by acidic foods.

Like sugar, acidic-containing foods cause some of the worst problems, say dental care experts. And those damaging acids can be found in healthy foods like citrus and tomatoes. But you can still enjoy acidic foods if you eat them along with other fruits and vegetables that have high water content. This water content will dilute the acids and stimulate your saliva to wash away food particles.

Many people use sugar substitutes to avoid sugar’s detrimental dental effects. Even though sugar substitutes don’t produce the acids that contribute to tooth decay, sugarless or sugar-free products can be just as damaging as sugar.

The foods you consume can make a big difference in the health of your gums and teeth, but most important to your dental care is regular dentist visits. It takes an expert in family dentistry to detect and resolve dental problems before they become more difficult and expensive to treat. Luckily, you can find an excellent and affordable dentist in Clearwater who will provide the compassionate dental care you need.
