Dentist-Approved Tips to Take a Bite Out of Tooth Decay

Did you know that certain foods can make for better trips to the dentist? Use these dental suggestions to protect your teeth and gums.

The Best Dental Diet

Family dentistry experts have found that your diet is linked to your dental health. Some foods are good for your smile, while others are dental dangers. The best choices contain calcium and phosphorus, which strengthen tooth enamel, plus vitamins and protein that protect your overall health. By choosing the following foods, you can save your smile and reduce your need for dental care treatment:

  • Crunchy vegetables
  • Fresh fruit
  • Cheese
  • Milk
  • Yogurt
  • Plain nuts
  • Chicken, turkey, fish, and lean meats
  • Sugarless gum
  • Water

The Worst Choices to Chew

Not surprisingly, filling your diet with sugary, starchy, and acidic foods and drinks can do damage to your teeth. If these foods make up the majority of your diet, you will find yourself needing lots of treatment from an affordable dentist. While these foods and drinks are okay to have occasionally, try your best to limit them and brush your teeth after enjoying them:

  • Candy
  • Desserts
  • Sugar-filled snacks
  • Starchy white pasta, rice, and bread
  • Sugary dried fruit
  • Fruit juice
  • Sodas
  • Coffee
  • Tea

The Ideal Dental Care Habits

Smart eating is essential for dental health, but your dental habits are just as important. Follow these hints for a totally healthy smile:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day.
  • Floss once a day or more.
  • Use an anti-bacterial mouth rinse every day.
  • Choose a variety of healthy foods for both meals and snacks.
  • Stay away from sugary, starchy, and acidic foods and beverages.
  • Go to a dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings twice a year, or as recommended by your family dentistry clinic.
  • If you have a dental problem, seek treatment from an affordable dentist as soon as possible.
