The foods and drinks you consume play an important role in the health of your teeth. Although brushing and flossing are vital to maintaining optimum oral health, you can make it easier on both tools by doing your part to keep your mouth free and clear of harmful products. In addition, some foods can assist your oral health as well. Protect and enhance your tooth enamel with these healthy food choices:
– Watery Foods: Foods that have a high water content can wash away harmful bacteria in your mouth.
– Crunchy foods with high water content: Crunchy foods act as a buffer on teeth to clean them and assist in washing away harmful bacteria.
– Foods that help produce saliva: Saliva is a key substance your mouth uses to keep your teeth safe. Sugarless gum can help produce additional saliva to combat harmful acids in your mouth.
– Foods high in calcium and phosphorus: Foods high in calcium and phosphorus can be used to remineralize your tooth enamel and strengthen it so it can continue to protect your teeth effectively.
