Food & Nutrients to Optimize Your Oral Health

Healthy Teeth

You may know the foods that can keep you healthy and trim, but were you aware that some of those very same foods can also enhance your dental health? Just one more reason to choose a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. The key to healthy teeth and gums is daily brushing and flossing, regular visits to your family dentistry expert, and a diet rich in certain nutrients, like vitamin C and calcium. Learn why these nutrients will optimize your oral health and which foods you should add to your diet to ensure balanced intake.

Calcium and Vitamin D

Calcium and vitamin D work together to protect your teeth and bones. Without sufficient levels of calcium and vitamin D, your teeth will suffer. Consuming a diet rich in foods such as yogurt, milk, cheese, kale, broccoli, wild salmon, herring, and eggs (with the yolk) will ensure that you get a balance of calcium and vitamin D to maintain your bones and teeth. For some, supplements may be needed to reach adequate levels.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is vital to keeping gums healthy. A diet high in vitamin C-rich produce can lower your risk of gum disease. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to reduce inflammation, which is a major cause of the gum disease, gingivitis. It is found in many foods, such as strawberries, pineapple, papaya, kiwi, cantaloupe, lemons, broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts, kidney beans, cauliflower, cabbage, and more.

Water

Your body is 60% water, so drinking plenty of it can help to reduce plaque and tartar. Water helps to wash away food debris that gets trapped in the teeth and maintains high levels of saliva, which offers a protective effect. This is why a dry mouth needs to be discussed and carefully addressed with a family dentistry expert.

Green Tea

If you don’t like the idea of drinking plain water all day, consider drinking unsweetened herbal green tea. Antioxidants found in green tea inhibit the growth of bacteria that cause periodontal disease and break down gum tissue.

Dental care isn’t simply about routine visits to an affordable dentist in Ocoee or daily brushing and flossing. Eating a diet containing a variety of fruits and vegetables and low in extra sugar will also protect your teeth and gums.
