Dental Care Smiles and Nutrition

South Cullman cosmetic dental and tooth implants In this post from Turlock Dental Care in Turlock CA, we are talking about nutrition. There is nothing that impacts your smile as much as your eating habits. 1. Rinse after eating Rinse your mouth with a drink of water or brush your teeth after meals. People who snack all day long subject their teeth to sugars and food debris. Planned meals with brushing in between keep your oral health on top. 2. Avoid sugary gum Sugar-free gum doesn’t leave sugar to break down on your teeth and jeopardize your hard-earned healthy gums. If you are a gum chewer, do your smile a favor and go sugarless. 3. Avoid sticky foods Sticky foods have a habit of clinging to your teeth, which puts you at risk of decay. Toffee, gummy candy, fruit snacks, and even excessive dried fruit can be risky for smiles. Brushing doesn’t always remove the obstinate particles, so remember to floss after eating sticky items. 4. Consume nutritious foods A balanced diet with a variety of vitamins and minerals can keep the immune system strong and able to resist infection. 5. Say 'cheese!' Cheese contains calcium and protects teeth from acid that weakens tooth enamel. (It's vital not to go overboard as cheese is high in fat.) 6. Avoid acidic foods Acid will eat away enamel over time: lemons, red wine, soda pop. Limit direct, constant, consistent exposure. All things in moderation.
