Boy Drinking Milk - Tooth Friendly Foods

I’d like to talk about foods that are good for your teeth and foods that are not. The key to a healthy mouth is ‘everything in moderation’. Damage to your tooth enamel and tooth structure can be caused by naturally existing and artificial acids found in foods and drinks that can cause irreversible deterioration.

Making the preferred choice of including tooth friendly foods into your daily diet is much easier than you think. Foods that contain calcium and phosphorus and so help to protect your tooth enamel and encourage re-mineralisation includes:

  • Cheeses 
  • Milk
  • Meats
  • Chicken
  • Nuts

Tooth Friendly Food

Other foods with a high water content such as crunchy fruits, for example apples and pears, along with vegetables containing a higher water content, help to dilute the effects of sugar by stimulating the flow of saliva. Changing your choices of beverages to water or milk and limiting your intake of sugar containing drinks is also ideal.

 

Lastly, regular check-ups with a dentist are essential in maintaining a happy smile and healthy teeth. Now with online booking available, making an appointment at Australia Dental Burpengary has never been easier!
