Foods That Improve Your Overall Oral Health

Posted on 8/24/2020 by Elmwood Dental Group
Unfortunately, there are many foods that promote poor oral health. Every time we eat and drink sugary and starchy foods, we are feeding the bad bacteria. This bacteria growth causes tooth decay and gum disease. Sugar and starch both react with plaque by forming acid. The acid, then attacks the mouth, and will, over time break down enamel and cause tooth decay. Healthy Diet, Healthy Teeth and Gums The food and drink we consume is important for promoting good overall health. So here is a quick summary of foods that can be enjoyed as part of a healthy and balanced diet, to maintain the health of your teeth and gums while taking care of the rest of your body too. Dairy products such as cheese, milk, and yogurt are calcium-rich which helps to rebuild tooth enamel when it has been damaged and keeps teeth strong. Cheese is particularly great because of how high in phosphate it is, which helps to balance pH levels. Fruit and Vegetables are rich in fiber, which helps to keep your teeth and gums clean. Sugarless chewing gum is fantastic for saliva production. Increasing your saliva production is great for your oral health because it helps to remove food particles that are trapped between teeth and wash away plaque. Fluoridated drinks like water and milk are calcium-rich and helps to lower acid levels to battle off tooth decay. Watch What You Eat Maintaining a well-balanced diet, practicing good oral hygiene, and having regular dental visits is the secret to having good overall oral health. If we are what we eat, then the same goes for your mouth! Everything that we consume plays a role in fighting against dental issues, maintaining a healthy smile and promoting overall health.
