Food For Teeth
Everyone knows that regularly moving your body will help your body stay healthier
in the long run. Whether you’re going for a walk, lifting weights or simply cleaning
your house, moving helps keep your muscles working. The same goes for your teeth.
Eating nutrient-dense foods that take a bit of work to eat will help improve your
teeth – and probably your body too!
Foods rich in calcium and vitamin C will help your jawbone and teeth stay strong.
Consider adding these foods to your grocery list:
Low-fat milk, cheese and yogurt.
Spinach, kale, bok choy, broccoli and beans. Nuts, especially almonds and walnuts.
Fish, especially salmon.
Fruits, such as apples, oranges, apricots and grapefruit.
Green tea and peppermint tea can help reduce bad breath by killing bacteria. The
increased hydration benefits saliva production, which helps move particles around
and through your mouth.
If you forget this list when you head to the grocery store, think about buying bright,
colorful foods in their natural state, for example a whole, raw apple and a brick
of cheese. Not only will your teeth thank you, but so will your body.
Also be sure to visit your dentist regularly and secure a dental insurance plan.
