The Best Foods for Healthy Teeth

Healthy Teeth

When you think of dental health, brushing, flossing and trips to a family dentistry expert in Baltimore are the first things that likely come to mind. What you may not realize is that certain foods can also be beneficial to your dental care. Vitamins C and D, calcium, water, and antioxidants are all crucial elements to keeping your dental health in check. Learn which fruits and vegetables are high in the nutrients you need for healthy teeth and gums, as well as gain a full understanding of just why these foods are so good for your dental care.

Calcium and Vitamin D – Calcium and vitamin D protect your teeth and bones, so without sufficient levels, your teeth will suffer. Consuming a diet rich in foods, such as milk, cheese, yogurt, kale, broccoli, wild salmon, herring, and eggs will help you get enough calcium and vitamin D to maintain the integrity of your bones and teeth. Supplements may be necessary to reach adequate levels.

Vitamin C Vitamin C strengthens blood vessels and the connective tissue that maintain the stronghold between your teeth and your jawbone, making it vital for keeping gums healthy. Vitamin C helps to reduce inflammation, which is a major contributor to gum disease. Many foods contain vitamin C, such as cantaloupe, strawberries, kiwi, pineapple, kohlrabi, papaya, lemons, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, kidney beans, cauliflower, cabbage, and more. Because heat destroys vitamin C, be sure you vary your preparation methods.

Water Your body is 60% water, so it should come as no surprise that drinking plenty of it can help reduce the development of plaque and tartar. Water washes away excess food debris that can get stuck in the teeth and maintains high levels of saliva in the mouth. This is also why dry mouth should be discussed with an affordable dentist at Dental One Associates at Beltway.

Green Tea If you are bored with the thought of sipping water all day, consider drinking unsweetened herbal green tea. The antioxidants found in green tea, known as catechins, inhibit the growth of bacteria that break down gum tissue and contribute to periodontal disease.

Protecting your teeth isn’t only about routine visits to an affordable dentist in Baltimore or daily brushing and flossing, your diet is important, too. Consuming a variety of fruits and vegetables can protect your overall health and well-being, including your teeth and gums.
