Do You Eat A Tooth-Healthy Diet?

Healthy Teeth and Your Fayetteville DietMaintaining healthy teeth is an important concern at The Fayetteville Dentist. Maintaining healthy teeth requires daily brushing and flossing. Regular cleanings and checkups at our office are also essential.

We often forget that maintaining a healthy diet can also be beneficial to your teeth. A diet that includes foods that help your muscles and bones will also help you develop healthy gums and healthy teeth. Examples include foods rich in vitamin B such as breads and cereals. Foods rich in vitamin C, usually fruits and vegetables, help improve the health of your gums. Zinc and magnesium are also good for the health of your teeth and are found in lean beef, fish, and poultry.

Saliva is important to healthy teeth because it assists in maintaining the pH balance in your mouth. Foods high in fiber also encourage saliva production as does the chewing of sugar-free gum. Gum, however, can damage unhealthy teeth or pull out dental fillings, so always use caution when deciding whether to chew gum.

Making good diet choices and limiting between meal sugar consumption can improve the health of your teeth and gums. At The Fayetteville Dentist we offer complete general and cosmetic dentistry. Call us to schedule your next cleaning and checkup today!
