Do you know what foods are best for your oral health? If not, you are not alone. It can be shocking how many people seem to not know the right foods for their bodies, let alone their smile. That is why Dr. Steven Sachs and the staff at Sachs Family Dental in Orem, Utah, is happy to talk to you about the best foods for your oral health care.
The healthiest foods for your smile can be found starting with chicken and other meats, green spinach, green vegetables, cheese, nuts, and milk. These delicious foods are important because they guard your tooth enamel and are high in calcium, which will keep your teeth in tip-top health. Having healthy and tasty foods in your diet is also great for your body’s overall health physically and mentally.
Apples and pears are also excellent choices when it comes to your diet because they are natural flossers. These foods have high water content, which is important because it dilutes the sugars in these foods while also increasing saliva production in your mouth. They help fight against cavities or tooth decay and keep food particles from settling between your teeth and along your gumline.
