Eat Well For Healthy Teeth!

healty teethWe all know that sugary foods can cause damage to our teeth, but did you know that there are also some foods that are great for your teeth? Here at Guiney Den-tal Clinic, we believe that preventing dental problems is easier and more effec-tive than treating them, and we will always be happy to advise you on how to keep your teeth healthy for life!

Eating a healthy, balanced diet is the best way to ensure good oral health, and some simple tips such as cutting out fizzy drinks and only eating sweets with meals occasionally can help to keep your teeth looking and feeling great. The following foods are known to have beneficial effects for your teeth and gums, and we recommend including as many of them as possible in your diet on a regular basis.

Foods That Are Good For Your Teeth:

  1. Apples.
    Apples are a great source of vitamins, and they actually have a cleaning effect on your teeth as they can remove food debris and plaque as you eat them. Eating apples can also help to prevent bacteria in your mouth due to their natural acidity, so they are a really good choice for snacking on. Carrots have a similar effect, and also make an ideal snack at any time of the day.
  2. Cheese.
    Cheese is high in calcium, an important mineral to keep your teeth healthy, and also helps to balance out the acids in some foods that can damage the enamel on your teeth. Cheese is a great addition to a meal or snack for this reason, and it makes an excellent lunchbox item, too!
  3. Garlic.
    Many people do not know that garlic is a natural antibiotic with multiple health benefits for your body. It contains allicin, which protects against bacteria and helps to prevent and treat gum disease. Ginger has similar effects, and is another flavourful spice to include in your cooking.
  4. Leafy green vegetables.
    Leafy green vegetables are packed with B vita-mins that help fight gum disease, as well as being naturally high in fibre, which cleans the teeth as you eat. Try including spinach, kale and broc-coli in your diet more often for healthy teeth and gums.
  5. Nuts.
    Nuts contain a high level of calcium, which is great for healthy teeth and bones, and Brazil nuts are especially useful since they also contain phosphorus to help remineralise teeth and strengthen them. Enjoy a vari-ety of nuts, including cashew nuts, almonds and Brazil nuts, to make the most of the benefits they can bring.
