Dentist-Approved Advice to Protect Your Smile

Want to have a healthy smile? Start with the way you eat. Discover these simple tips to keep your teeth at their best.

Feed Your Need for Dental Health

To have better trips to the dentist, make better diet choices. The foods and drinks you choose have an impact on your smile. That’s why family dentistry experts say that a healthy smile starts on your plate. There are certain foods that are good for your smile, while others are very bad. The best choices contain calcium and phosphorus that strengthen tooth enamel, as well as vitamins and protein that protect your overall health. By choosing the following foods, you can protect your teeth and gums, as well as lessen your need for dental care treatment:

  • Water
  • Milk
  • Cheese
  • Crunchy vegetables
  • Fresh fruit
  • Lean meats, poultry, and fish
  • Nuts
  • Sugar-free gum

Chew Over these Dental Dangers

While some foods are great for your teeth, others can do lots of damage. See, a number of foods and drinks are high in sugar, acid, and starch. All of these can attack your tooth enamel and lead to dental disease. If you consume these choices too often, you can increase your dental problems that demand an affordable dentist. While these foods and drinks are okay on occasion, try your best to limit them and brush your teeth after having them:

  • Candies, both hard and soft
  • Sugary snacks
  • Desserts
  • Sugar-coated dried fruit
  • Starchy white pastas, breads, and rice
  • Acidic coffee, tea, and wine
  • Soft drinks
  • Fruit juices

Complete Your Good Diet with Great Dental Care

No matter what you eat and drink, you need to practice good oral hygiene for total dental protection. Along with choosing healthy foods and drinks, practice these dental hygiene habits:

  • Brush at least twice a day.
  • Floss at least once every day.
  • See a dentist 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.
  • Choose healthy foods on a regular basis.
  • Stay away from choices high in sugar, starch, and acids.
