Even though your teeth are the strongest substance in your body, they still need healthy foods to keep strong and healthy. There are many foods we eat each day that play a role in our oral health, which is why it’s important to know the right foods for your smile.
Our dentists, Dr. Daniel Sahutske, takes pride in giving you high-quality care. That is why our team at Oxford Lakes Dental Care in Oxford, Michigan, is sharing some insight with you on healthy treats for your teeth.
Here are some tasty treats that are healthy for your teeth:
– Cheeses, chicken, various nuts and milk all help protect your tooth enamel by providing calcium and phosphorus, which helps remineralize your teeth and keep your tooth enamel healthy.
– Water is a vital substance we all must have to survive, but it can flush away bacteria and food particles in your mouth and keep your mouth hydrated.
– Crunchy and juicy foods like apples, pears and vegetables have high water content, which dilutes any sugars they contain and increase saliva production.
– Citrus fruits, tomatoes and lemons are also healthy for your oral health but should be taken as part of a bigger meal to lessen the acids they contain.
If you keep your diet healthy, your smile and overall health will thank you over the years. If you need to see a dentist or have questions about your oral health, please call us today at 248-628-2540 to make an appointment. Our team is happy to help you.
