Eat to Keep Teeth Healthy with these Dentist-Approved Foods and Drinks

It doesn’t have to be difficult to have a healthy smile. Just follow these simple tips to keep your teeth and breath at their best.

Get a Taste of the Truth about Eating

Every time you go to the dentist, you’re probably warned to stay away from sugary sweets and snacks. But you may not be aware that sugar isn’t the only danger to dental health. Any food or drink that contains sugars, starches, and acids can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and very bad breath. If not removed from your teeth, the sugars and starches in food can cause your teeth to decay, while the acids can wear away your delicate tooth enamel. And the lack of a good dental care routine can cause bad breath. Since it’s silly to think that you’ll cut out all of these foods and drinks completely, just try to have them occasionally but strive to practice the following healthy dental habits.

Say Hello to Healthy Foods and Drinks

While it’s important to know that sugary, starchy, and acidic foods and beverages are dangers to dental health, you also need to know about the many foods and drinks that are good for your teeth and breath. According to family dentistry experts, numerous foods and drinks contain nutrients and vitamins that contribute to dental health. To maintain a healthy smile, choose foods from this list of dentist-approved choices:

  • Milk
  • Some cheeses
  • Vegetables
  • Lean meats, poultry, and fish
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Whole-grain breads
  • Fruit
  • Tap water

Foster Family Habits that Fight Tooth Decay and Bad Breath

What you eat is one component of dental health, but the other is how you take care of your smile. It’s actually just as essential to have good dental habits at home and see an affordable dentist on a regular basis. To help your family develop a healthy oral hygiene routine, follow these easy dental care tips:

  • Make sure everyone in your family brushes their teeth at least twice a day and flosses daily.
  • Schedule regular appointments with an affordable dentist for everyone in your family. For convenience, find a family dentistry practice that treats both adults and children.
  • Reduce your intake of sugary and acidic foods, such as sweets, starchy snacks, fruit juices, coffee, tea, carbonated sodas, and sports drinks.
  • Try to limit your family’s eating to meal times to avoid having sugars and acids stay on their teeth all day.
  • If a snack is needed, select healthier foods and drinks.
