Hungry to Know the Best and Worst Foods for Dental Care

Food is a major factor in your dental health. See which foods and drinks have the greatest effect on your smile.

Foods that Make your Dentist Smile

According to family dentistry experts, the secret to dental health is hidden in your kitchen. There are many foods that actually prevent tooth decay and help freshen breath. All of the following foods will improve your trips to the dentist:

  • Firm, Crunchy Vegetables – Veggies like celery and carrots demand a lot of chewing, which scrubs away debris. This chewing increases saliva production, which then helps rinse and remove the foods and acids on teeth.
  • Dark, Leafy Vegetables – Broccoli, bok choy, kale, and other leafy veggies help you get the needed nutrients that support dental health.
  • Meat, Fish, and Tofu – All of these protein sources are very rich in phosphorus, which may also protect tooth enamel.
  • Milk – High in calcium and vitamin D, this drink helps strengthen teeth and bones.
  • Cheese and Yogurt – These foods are very high in calcium and phosphorus, which can protect your tooth enamel and replace minerals in the teeth.

Foods that Damage Your Dental Health

Since the food you eat has a major effect on your dental health, you need to know which foods and drinks can lead to dental care problems. Discover the dental dangers lurking in your kitchen:

  • Tomatoes – Their high-acid content can cause tooth erosion, so only eat them occasionally in meals, rather than regularly as snacks.
  • Candy – Sweets coat your teeth with sugars and acids that lead directly to tooth decay.
  • Dried Fruit – Its sugary, sticky nature makes it get stuck in your teeth, which increases your risk of decay.
  • Red and White Wine – Both can quickly stain your teeth, while the acids erode your tooth enamel.
  • Soda – Its sugars can cause tooth decay and the acids can wear down your tooth enamel.
  • Coffee – Its acids can eat at enamel, while severely staining your teeth.

Feed Your Dental Care Needs

It’s silly to think that you’ll only eat foods that are good for your smile, but family dentistry experts want you to strive to make healthier choices most of the time. To further protect your dental health, follow these dental care tips:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day.
  • Floss daily.
  • Visit an affordable dentist for check-ups and cleanings at least twice a year.
  • If you have a dental problem, see an affordable dentist immediately to avoid further pain and problems.
