Do You Eat a Smile-Healthy Diet?

Today’s post explains how specific foods and eating behaviors affect our teeth.

The Sugar Problem

Sugars get converted by bacteria in the mouth to acids. The acids begin to attack enamel and initiate decay for men and women of all ages, necessitating professional teeth cleaning. Fruits have high water content which can dilute the effects of the sugars they contain and get the saliva flowing so they aren’t no-no’s. The chocolate bars, hard candies, cookies, cakes, and pies are.

Acidic Food Coupling

Oranges, tomatoes, lemons and the like should be eaten as part of a meal to curtail the acidic effects. It is a good idea to eat a variety of healthy foods such as cheeses, chicken, other meats, nuts, and milk. The calcium and phosphorus will boost tooth remineralization.

Timing of Meals

The more you eat, the more frequently your teeth are subject to decay. This can be tempered by selecting healthy snacks. And keep in mind, the later at night you eat the more likely you are to not only eat unhealthy foods but to skip oral hygiene altogether.
