Did you know that what you eat and drink plays a considerable role in the health of your gums and teeth? Did you also know that there are foods that actually help promote good oral health?
There is great validity to the expression “you are what you eat.” Your diet can make or break you in terms of your overall health and wellness. Our bodies need certain nutrients in order to function properly. Think of your body as a car, if you run out of fuel, don’t put the correct type of fuel in, or fail to regularly take it in for check-ups and oil changes, it will not run or it will not run very well. Our organs and systems are complex, yet what they require to perform is quite simple.
So, what do your teeth and gums need?
According to the American Dental Association, the following foods and drinks are good for your dental health.
- Water-fluoridated water helps to fight acids that can cause cavities
- Dairy-calcium rich foods help to strength teeth
- Lean Protein-fish, chicken, meat, and eggs contain valuable proteins that keep your teeth strong
- Fruits and Vegetables-chewing stimulates salvia production, which helps wash away acids and food particles from your teeth
- Nuts- contain important minerals that are not only good for your teeth, but your overall health too
