Good Dental Health Begins with Good Food Choices

In today’s world we are exposed to so many bad foods. From fast food restaurants to processed foods such as potato chips, candy, ice cream and soda, the chances of damaging teeth and overall dental health are quite substantial. In addition, poor nutrition has grown to become a way of life for many in our fast-paced world. The media, online social media interaction and others seem to promote foods that are deficient in nutrition. This is a concern because these actions have a direct and lasting impact on not only overall general health but even more specifically dental health and wellness.

Eating Lots of Fruits and Vegetables

 

When the right food choices are made, general health and dental health improves. For example, choosing to avoid foods that are artificially sweetened with table sugar can greatly improve oral health. Having healthy teeth and gums means eating and drinking in the right way. Another aspect of overall dental health involves drinking more fresh clean water. Water helps to flush away any dissolved solids that tend to cling to teeth. Eating lots of fruits and vegetables and lean sources of protein can only serve to help dental health also. Reducing the number of snacks that you eat between meals can help in the same way.

Finally, brushing twice a day and flossing while at the same time following a good home dental health program can serve to keep teeth healthy, vibrant and disease-free. When this is combined with regular routine dental visits and cleanings, the end result is great dental health going forward. When visiting with your dental care provider it is a good idea to discuss not only overall dental health but also nutrition and diet choices. Your dentist can help you to understand more specifically how nutrition and diet can have a direct impact on long-term dental health.
