Eat These Foods for Healthier Teeth

Healthy Teeth

Virtually everyone acknowledges the need for regular flossing and brushing when it comes to keeping teeth healthy. Eradicating bacteria and plaque accumulation is vital if decay and gum disease are to be prevented. But research indicates that making the right dietary choices can also play an important role in proper dental care and good oral health.

Among the dietary elements increasingly believed to promote good oral health are the green and black varieties of tea. Each of these contains polyphenols that are known to inhibit the bacteria linked to gum disease and cavities. Patients who rinse regularly with black tea have been shown to exhibit lower levels of plaque accumulation than those who use plain water, and the plaque they did have was less significant and less sticky.

Recent research has suggested that including cheese in the diet can reduce mouth acidity that is linked to plaque development. When compared to subjects who had milk or sugar-free yogurt products instead of cheese, the mouth pH levels of cheese eaters were significantly lower.

Raisins are a great dietary addition for those concerned with proper dental care. They possess a natural sweetness, but don’t have sucrose, the kind of sugar known for causing bacteria to adhere to teeth and produce plaque. Not only that, raisins contain compounds and phytochemicals that have been shown to impede the growth of the bacteria responsible for cavities and gum disease.

Increasing the amount of crunchy food items in the diet is a great way to disrupt the ability of plaque and bacteria to settle on the surface of the teeth. So, choosing apples, cucumbers, celery, and other crunchy produce is something every family dentistry expert in Fayetteville is sure to endorse.

The American Dental Association has reported that foods high in calcium such as fish, meat, and eggs are great for strengthening tooth enamel and repairing damage caused by acidic food and drinks. Not only that, they have the ability to enhance bone health, including that of the jaw.

Finally, chewing sugarless gum can serve a key purpose in good dental care by fostering increased saliva production, which helps flush away excess bacteria. A stick of sugar-free gum can serve as a nice finish to a meal containing several of the tooth-friendly items mentioned.
