A Diet for Healthy Teeth

Healthy Teeth

What you choose to eat and drink can make as big of an impact on your oral health as the basic habits of routine dental care. There are foods that can aid cavity prevention in much the same manner that certain foods can contribute to tooth decay. Your diet is not only directly connected to your total health or the size of your waist, family dentistry experts agree that it is also a powerful tool in maintaining your oral health. Continue to visit an affordable dentist on a regular basis and be sure to brush and floss daily for optimal dental care.

Make it a priority to fit these teeth-friendly foods into your dental care regimen and skip the ones that promote adverse conditions in the mouth.

Wine. Red wine is a rich source of polyphenols, compounds known to be effective at killing bacteria responsible for gum disease and tooth decay. However, the red color has also been known to leave stains on the teeth. If you have a little cheese with your wine, you can effectively neutralize acids and produce beneficial saliva.

Cheese. Regular consumption of cheese has been shown reduce tooth enamel damage by as much as 71 percent compared to non-cheese eaters, according to one study. Cheese can also be beneficial to the teeth thanks to the calcium content, which helps to build strong teeth. Other healthy and teeth-friendly sources of calcium include canned salmon or sardines, dark leafy green vegetables, low-fat dairy, almonds, Brazil nuts, and sunflower seeds.

Dark chocolate. Dark chocolate has been shown to have protective properties that rival fluoride. Like red wine and green tea, dark chocolate is another rich source of polyphenols. Just be sure to choose brands that are 100 percent cacao to reap the benefits.

Green tea. Green tea has been shown to have properties that can improve metabolism, extend the lifespan, and ward off disease, but it can also protect your teeth. Made with fluoridated water, green tea offers additional mineral protection to strengthen tooth enamel. Green tea is also rich in catechin polyphenols that can help fight tooth decay. Study conducted in Japan found that men who drank at least one cup of green tea a day were 19 percent less likely to lose teeth than those who did not drink green tea.

Even with these healthy food choices, proper dental care—including brushing after every meal and making regular visits to your family dentistry professional—are still helpful habits for healthy teeth.
