Did you know that your diet plays a strong role in the health of your teeth? Although cleaning our teeth is a necessity no matter what we eat, the foods we eat can either strengthen our smiles or in many cases, put us at greater risks for oral health failure. Keep your smile shining with healthy foods and snacks that promote good hygiene and optimum oral health.

Some foods contain healthy minerals that can boost the durability of your teeth and gums. Foods high in calcium and phosphorous are valuable in the creation of tooth enamel and building strong teeth. This includes great treats like most types of nuts, healthy meats such as chicken and dairy products such as milk and cheese.

Some foods are suitable for washing your mouth. Crunchy and watery foods such as apples and pears are suitable options for keeping your teeth clean.

Eating customs are just as important as what you eat. Eat a wide collection of foods for a healthy diet full of nutritious vitamins and minerals, and avoid snacks and treats that are high in sugar.
